The Worlds Best Gather in Auckland
2001 World Team Racing Champs New Zealand
2003 ISAF World Team Racing Championship
Viaduct Basin, Auckland
Sixteen teams, nearly one hundred sailors, fifteen International Umpires and Judges, and one title. 2003 will see the fifth holding of this prestigious biennial event, which has grown year on year.
Starting on the very last day of January and being raced at a venue recently used to seeing the likes of Larry Ellison, Tom Cruise, and Dennis Conner, gracing it's pavements and waterways alike, the 2003 ISAF Team Racing Worlds will see the very best battling it out in the Viaduct Basin.
Organised by the New Zealand Team Racing Association, Yachting New Zealand, and ISAF, for the first time, the most important team-racing event in the calendar, and the most famous sailing regatta will be in the same venue. The timing of the Championship has been carefully planned to showcase the thrills and spills that Team Racing can bring to spectators. Taking place between the Louis Vuitton Cup Finals and the America's Cup Match, racing will be contested within touching distance of the shore and with the backdrop of the Americas Cup Village the event will certainly be spectacular and very memorable for all.
