The Auckland metropolitan area, in the New Zealand's North Island, is the largest and most populous urban area in the country with over 1.4 million residents. 

Auckland and its surroundings are famed for their natural beauty, with panoramas of majestic mountains and picturesque valleys. The area enjoys warm summers and mild winters. It is the warmest major centre of New Zealand and among the sunniest, with an average of over 2,000 sunshine hours a year. 

Auckland is known as the "City of Sails" because its harbour often hosts hundreds of yachts and has more per capita than any other world city, with around 135,000 yachts and launches. Around 60,000 of the country's 150,000 registered yachtsmen come from the Auckland Region. Roughly one in three Auckland households owns a boat.
