Auckland to Noumea
Ocean yacht race 2009 - 27 June
The fog that blanketed Auckland and the Waitemata harbour all day lifted a bit just before the start.
On the left Lion New Zealand, built for the late Sir Peter Blake and now part of Sail New Zealand.
Sarah-Jane, Sir Peter Blake's daughter is part of the Lion New Zealand crew.
Happy sailing to all teams.
