High excitement as fans line shore for Sail GP's NZ debut

Sat, Mar 18

Fans lined the shores of portside town Lyttelton for Sail GP's long-awaited debut in New Zealand today.

With the event finally able to take place after being postponed last year due to Covid-19, excitement levels were high.

Gates opened at lunchtime, hours before the race began, but plenty of fans were clearly keen to get amongst the celebrations early.

The event is a sell-out — there are set to be 15,000 people attending across the weekend, as well as boats galore carrying spectators watching from the water.
