Bid now for amazing America's Cup items

Issue date

Fancy a session out with Luna Rossa watching them train for the America's Cup? How about a ride on an Ocean Race boat? Perhaps you're looking for some sailing memorabilia, like a signed and framed Emirates Team New Zealand shirt.

All of these items, and more, are up for grabs as part of a silent auction being run by Yachting New Zealand to raise funds for the Yachting New Zealand Youth Sailing Foundation.

All four America's Cup teams have generously donated items to be auctioned off, as well as Bianca Cook and the New Zealand Ocean Racing team. Yachting New Zealand have also thrown in a special item from the 2016 Rio Olympics.

The full list of items is:

  • Signed and framed Emirates Team New Zealand shirt
  • Signed Sir Ben Ainslie race helmet, skiff suit and top
  • Luna Rossa training experience for two
  • Signed American Magic print, team T-shirt and cap
  • New Zealand Ocean Racing experience for two
  • Signed and framed Rio Olympics NZ sailing team singlet

But you need to hurry - bidding closes at 8pm on Tuesday, November 24, 2020. 

See here for more information, and here for details on how you can bid for an item. You might like to make a donation, or even sponsor a sailor.

The Yachting New Zealand Youth Sailing Foundation provides key support for this country’s top youth sailors by subsidising things like travel costs, coaching, equipment and leadership programmes as well as scholarships to help them get to the next level.
