All aboard the legendary Steinlager2 or Lion NZ for a short and sharp yacht race around the beautiful Auckland city harbour! In the company of an expert crew, you'll race against other yachts around the inner harbour as part of the Royal NZ Yacht Squadron Rum Race.

What's Included?

  • 2-3 hour Rum Race yacht experience
  • Experienced crew and skipper
  • All safety wear
  • Wet weather gear

Join the crew on a Friday afternoon for a spot of yacht racing around the sparkling Auckland city harbour! You'll board either the world-famous Steinlager2 or Lion NZ and participate in the Royal NZ Yacht Squadron Rum Race, a fun 2-3 hour social race against other yachts in Waitemata Harbour.
