Equipment: Bring money for admission (If there is a game on). Maybe some food but no bottles or cutting knives. There are the usual fast food stands if you wish to experience the true kiwi sporting event.
We were lucky to join one of the Boats going out to the sea to follow the Louis Vuitton Cup 2002 Semi Finals.
