Week 6

Volvo Ocean Race village and Ports of Auckland Cruise

This week we had a wonderful day to visit the Viaduct Harbour and have some fun in the sun.  We were able to view the round the world Volvo Ocean yachts which were out of the water receiving repairs.  We visited the Boatshed to see the enormous sails and booms.  At one place we were able to see a yacht cut in half and experience the tight fit that the sailors experience when they are racing.  We saw lots of bright lights on our travels - safety warning lights, neon lights, decorative lights, traffic lights and many more.

After lunch we all boarded a ferry which took us around the Ports of Auckland.  We saw many vessels such as cruise ships, cargo ships, coast guard and speed boats.  We went under the harbour bridge and back through the marina.  

Everyone enjoyed their day out in the sun.
