In Pictures: Southern Wind's Ammonite wins New Zealand Millennium Cup

Written by Gemma Fottles

The New Zealand Millennium Cup drew to a close earlier today in the Bay of Islands, with the Southern Wind built 24.72-metre sailing yacht Ammonite declared overall winner, though champion of the 2016 and 2017 editions of the race, the 28.1-metre Tawera built by Alloy Yachts in 1995, was hot on Ammonites’ heels.The Millennium Cup 2018 in New Zealand Photo: Jeff BrownThe Millennium Cup 2018 in New Zealand Photo: Jeff BrownThe Millennium Cup 2018 in New Zealand Photo: Jeff BrownThe Millennium Cup 2018 in New Zealand Photo: Jeff BrownThe Millennium Cup 2018 in New Zealand Photo: Jeff BrownThe Millennium Cup 2018 in New Zealand Photo: Jeff BrownThe Millennium Cup 2018 in New Zealand Photo: Jeff BrownThe Millennium Cup 2018 in New Zealand Photo: Jeff BrownThe Millennium Cup 2018 in New Zealand Photo: Jeff BrownThe Millennium Cup 2018 in New Zealand Photo: Jeff BrownThe Millennium Cup 2018 in New Zealand Photo: Jeff BrownThe Millennium Cup 2018 in New Zealand Photo: Jeff Brown
There’s no better place in the world to sail,” said Ammonite owner, Marcus Blackmore at the prize giving ceremony. “Thanks go to all the sponsors and, in particular, Doyle Sails New Zealand’s Mike Sanderson who helped us understand local conditions,” he continued, going onto say that Ammonite would enjoy defending the title next year if possible.The Millennium Cup 2018 in New Zealand Photo: Jeff Brown
