A large welcome flotilla welcomed Steinlager II home to Auckland on a stunning Hauraki Gulf day in early May.

Boating reporter Ben Gladwell was on board for the final stretch of the 1989-90 Whitbread winner's delivery voyage home from Alicante, Spain and filed this video (click play icon or top image left) of her home-coming.

Ben also savoured a guided tour of the 25.6m (84ft) ketch with former Steinlager crewmember Mark Orams. Don't miss the full story, and an exclusive behind the scene video, in the June issue of Boating New Zealand which is on sale from May 31.
