Sailing Away

This is what came 'sailing across' my computer screen this afternoon - a short-notice invitation to indulge in a spot of match racing between former America's Cup yachts NZL40 and NZL41. Sadly, given prior commitments, I had to waive this singular chance to join the crew tomorrow for a 3-hour 'spin' from Auckland's Viaduct Harbour out across the blue, blue waters of the Waitemata Harbour. Sitting here, on a cool autumn Christchurch afternoon, it's a big temptation - I can think of few things nicer right now than a warm Auckland breeze blowing through my hair. Another time perhaps - there's always room to fantasise about joining the billionaire yachting set. www.explorenz.co.nz
