The owner of the 44.75-metre Catalina, built at the Vitters Shipyard in the Netherlands, commented, “I now have the absolute best opinion of New Zealand. This event was thoroughly enjoyable, low key, and I will be remembering this for a long time to come.”Second day of the NZ Millennium Cup superyacht regattaPhoto: Jeff Brown / Breed MediaThe regatta, which was established in 2000, making it the longest running regatta in the South Pacific, also features one of the longest racing reaches in the world.
