were delighted when my brother John and his wife Vancie joined us for
some sailing in the Hauraki Gulf. The Hauraki Gulf is probably the
premier cruising area of New Zealand. The sailing crazy city of
Auckland is the major metropolitan destination. There are heaps of
wonderful islands to explore and enjoy all within easy day sailing
Auckland is the center of New Zealand's Americas Cup sailing team and an
incredible number of boats get out on the water front to go racing
sailing or just enjoy the water.
islands in Hauraki Gulf are lovely. We circumnavigated Waiheke
Island stopping in Bays on both the North and south coast.
Although the Island is just a few miles from Auckland it really is a
world apart. Out of the Auckland fast lane and into a laid back
remote Island community.
So - anyway -
here are a few pictures of the Auckland area. And
