Experience the thrill of sailing on an iconic yacht, Lion New Zealand. Lion NZ was previously sailed by Sir Peter Blake in the 1985/86 Round the World Yacht Race. After a full refit she is ready to take young NZers out to explore the Hauraki Gulf.

If you are looking for something different and memorable to do in the school holidays, look no further. We aim to inspire, educate and motivate our young people to learn about our environment, learn about sailing and what better way than to sail on a maxi yacht. Leave Auckland behind and explore the Hauraki Gulf under sail.

Lunch stop and optional swim at Motuihe Island or similar island in the Hauraki Gulf. Lunch is not included but we can organise that for a small charge of $12pp. No experience necessary, just a sense of adventure and fun. Hot drinks and safety gear provided.

**Please note - minimum age of 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Individuals of 14 years of age will not be required to be accompanied by an adult, but must have parental consent. Accompaniment of an adult for 14 years or older is optional.

If in the event we have to cancel the event due to weather we will endeavour to transfer the booking to another appropriate sailing or offer a full refund.
