Blind Sailing New Zealand has in the past organised a series of cruises in co-operation with the Royal New Zealand Navy. Until now most cruises have usually been held during November. The group is experementing with Late Summer dates to see if the weather can be more clement at that time.

Currently an association is being sought from interested boat owners to provide a cruising facility for this group. Blind Sailing NZ would welcome hearing from intereste boat owners that woul participate in an annual cruise with a 50/50 Blind, sigted crew.

A large number of VIP's have passed through this group and the participants have come from all corners of New Zealand. They have sailed as crew or helmed Yachts from an Ameica's Cup Class yacht to an Optimist. They are Qualified either by Blind Sailing NZ's certification system or as high as Yachting New Zealand Coaching Certificate level.
