Auckland Worlds


Welcome to Yachting New Zealand's podcast: Broad Reach Radio.

The podcast will feature a range of topics from interviews with top sailors of today and yesteryear to chats with people in the sailing and boating industries. It aims to be informative, entertaining, educational or just something for people to feel connected to the sport. You can find the latest episodes below, or on Podbean, Spotify, Apple and Stitcher.
