Public Open Days on Lion New Zealand

Sir Peter Blake's Lion New Zealand yacht which sailed in the 1985/86 Whitbread Round the World yacht race has just had an extensive restoration that was completed in March this year and has been returned to the Waitemata Harbour.

To celebrate her restoration and return to the water we have two public open days planned this weekend. Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th October, 10am to 2pm at Market Square, Viaduct Harbour.

Please share this opportunity with friends and family. We welcome you down to take a look over the results of the restoration and come meet the NZ Sailing Trust Crew. A gold coin donation is appreciated.

The restoration included (not limited to) a complete gut of the interior, replacement engineering, all systems, refurbished mast, new keel and rudder. Working alongside Steinlager 2, Lion New Zealand adds valuable capacity back to our youth programmes allowing us to deliver sailing journeys to up to 2,000 participants each year.
