    Eden Park

    by redrider Written Mar 1, 2003

    If you are a die hard rugby or cricket fan you cannot pass up a trip to Eden Park. It is (in an Aucklanders opinion) the major sporting ground for these sports in New Zealand.
    It has an amazing atmosphere.

    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.

    LV Cup Prizegiving

    by shiran_d Written Feb 8, 2003

    We were lucky to join one of the Boats going out to the sea to follow the Louis Vuitton Cup 2002 Semi Finals.

    It was a warm sunny Sunday afternoon, wounderful setting for great semi-finals between Oneworld and Oracal,

    Oracal won the battle that early afternoon.
    The finals proved that they were a better and a stronger team for Louis Vuitton Cup 2002.

    Louis Vuitton semi- Cup Finals

    by shiran_d Updated Feb 8, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was out at sea watching the semi finals at a very close distance.
    See my pic.
    North Island, about 44,000 square miles and home to approximately 70% of the population; South Island, about 58,000 square miles, and Stewart Island, about 700 square miles. There is no point in the country that is more than 70 miles from the sea, and from end to end; the country would stretch from Los Angeles to Seattle.

    Equipment: Boats, Sails and a strong team.

    Out at see along the side of Oneworld and Oracal
