Sailing is one of the most popular sports in NZ, especially in Auckland where the biggest harbour in the southern hemisphere is located, so it`s a must to go on a sailing trip.

Languages International offered in the Social Programme a trip with one of the most powerful sailing yachts ever built, an Americas`s Cup boat. It was an amazing experience to sail with such a high-tech yacht. We were not only guests we bacame hands-on crew members. We could steer the boat, grind the winches and help the supervising crew.

If you have the opportunity to go on such a trip, do it!
