When planning you upcoming charter schedule, make sure to keep the 36th edition of the Americas Cup in mind.

Charter bookings are sure to quickly book out for this must-see event so don’t miss out.
Racing will take place in the waters off Auckland, across the wider Hauraki Gulf, running south along the North Shore beaches around North Head encompassing the inner Waitemata harbour right up to Auckland’s iconic harbour bridge and downtown CBD, across Auckland’s Eastern suburbs and all the way out the Tamaki Strait between Waiheke Island and Maraetai.
