City of sails

Secondary school sailing teams manoeuvre before the start of a team race at Snells Beach north of Auckland.

Instead of sailing to win, team-racing requires skippers to consider the most advantageous finishing order for the whole team, even if it means the individual places last.

The fate of the gulf requires Kiwis to make the same calculation—how do we put sustainability before individual gain? Is there an outcome that benefits the environment as much as society itself?
