Auckland On the Water Boat Show - Images from a wet final day

Advancing weather - 2017 Auckland on the Water Boat Show - Day 4 Richard Gladwell
The Auckland On the Water Boat Show was plagued by the usual Auckland Spring weather - brilliantly fine for a few hours, then wind and horizontal rain for the next few hours and then another transition.

Crowds were up and down - with the America's Cup Protocol announcement maybe having dampener on Friday morning, and the All Black test having a similar effect on Sunday morning/lunchtime. And then the visitors turned out en masse on Saturday. Crowds were a bit like the weather.

However regardless of what it is doing outside - there is always plenty to see inside - and then pop-out when the sun comes out. Plus many screens inside were running the big events on Friday and Sunday.
