Spnnaker start to a Friday afternoon boat race under the Auckland harbour bridge.


  1. Is this the famous ‘Nippon Clipon’ bridge?

  2. Yes, that’s the Nippon Clipon bridge, built originally with 4 lanes, but as the bridge opened up vast residential areas on the North Shore, these four lanes were inadequate after ten years. So they added two lanes on either side. See wikipedia for more details.
