The America’s Cup Challenge is dubbed a rich man’s race, which is fair, given the yachts cost millions to build and hundreds of dollars simply to complete a single tack. So it seems a shame to have these mega-dollar racing machines go to pasture once they’ve done their dash. Explore NZ has put the yachts to good use, and you can now glide through the horbor on one of the former thoroughbreds. Wrap your hands around a winch, get behind a grinder, or simply relax and enjoy a two-hour experience, with a great view of the Devonport peninsula, Rangitoto, and the city. Competitive types can take on a three-hour head-to-head race challenge.
