Red Socks Day

In 1995 one of our greatest New Zealanders did an extraordinary thing. Sir Peter Blake pulled on a humble pair of Red Socks and took on the most powerful teams in the world to win one of the oldest and most coveted sporting trophies – the America’s Cup!

Purchasing a pair of red socks helps the Sir Peter Blake Trust continue his environmental leadership legacy. We do this by inspiring environmental passion in people through life-changing adventures and programmes that follow in the footsteps of Sir Peter himself.
