Photo: Sailboat Regatta Akaroa Harbour New Zealand

Surrounded by the beautiful landscape of Akaroa Harbour on the South Island of New Zealand, a sailboat regatta takes place in the blue colored water.

Under sunny skies, the landscape and the turquoise colored water all make the Sailboat Regatta in the Akaroa Harbour on the South Island of New Zealand an unforgettable day. People prepare their sailboats for this event and the race begins as a marker boat sits in the harbour to mark their destination points.

Watching the Sailboat Regatta from along the banks of the Akaroa Harbour in New Zealand is very eventful as this race gets underway and each captain tries their best to win. Some mishaps take place but as long as the weather cooperates, the regatta goes off without a hitch.

This is a great sporting event that many people take part in to test their skills at sailing. Wind conditions make a huge difference in the sailboat regatta and days when the wind barely blows, the race can become a very long event.

Akaroa Harbour is one of the most beautiful places on the South Island of New Zealand and tourists find that there is never a dull moment here. ... continue below the picture...
