Christchurch to host Sail GP

From Morning Report, 7:37 am on 13 December 2023

Lyttelton Harbour has been confirmed as host of the New Zealand leg of Sail GP in March next year. Auckland was meant to play host to the racing, but the unavailability of a spectator facility put paid to the event. Christchurch has hosted the event in the past, and it's now been confirmed to take place on the 23rd and 24th of March. Tyrone Fields, councillor for Banks Peninsula, spoke with Ingrid Hipkiss.
