Today marks the 178th Anniversary of Auckland City, and with this comes the annual racing regatta on the WaitematA Harbour. More than 20 vintage tugboats are battling it out on the water, and the yearly Dragon Boat and Waka Ama races will be held in the Viaduct. Matt Hall-Smith from the Auckland Anniversary Day Committee is there and describes the scene to Guyon Espiner.
