On Friday, North Sails staged their Wind Warrior Regatta at the Viaduct Harbour, the event was well attended - with viewing room at a premium - once each race got underway.
It was also a great opportunity to see the latest developments in the Viaduct Harbour ahead of the Auckland International Boat Show which gets underway in two weeks on 15 September.

It is a stunning area - with the new Events Centre and connection bridge to Downtown Auckland - which as well as providing access, also provides an outstanding vantage point to view the action and marine scene.
We have a picture gallery of the North Sails Wind Warrior Regatta in this edition, along with some images of the Viaduct Harbour marine vista.
Next Saturday, 10 September, the second Round of the America's cup World Series gets underway in Plymouth, England. In this edition of Sail-World we have the latest edition of America's Cup Uncovered, the latest in the weekly magazine series on the 34th America's Cup. We also have the latest America's Cup Weekly newsletter.
There's some changes being rung for the next round of the ACWS, with a new coach and skipper being announced for the China Team, plus the addition of a new helmsman to replace departed double Olympic medallist Mitch Booth.
Waka Racing at St Moritz, Switzerland
In the sixth stage of the World Match Racing Tour, the St Moritz Match race, the New Zealand team Waka Racing have placed ninth overall in the field of 12 entries. In this newsletter we have the latest reports from Switzerland, and reports from Waka Racing on their performance - along with comments on the vagaries of Swiss lake sailing.
If you are keen young windsurfer, there have been some changes made to the format of the Kendall Cup for 2011-2012. We have details of the changes in this edition of Sail-World, plus the announcement of the now six regattas that will make up the tour.

There's been a change in the age groups for the event as well - all designed to improve the event, and it's great to see the organisers ringing the new moves. Hopefully they will help pull more young sailors through to compete at the very top levels of New Zealand's most successful Olympic event - for men and women.
