Competitors in the New Zealand Slalom Windsurfing Championships sail past superyacht Octopus in the Otago Harbour yesterday.

The 127m-long yacht, which boasts two helicopters, two submarines, a basketball court, cinema and pool, is the largest to visit the South and belongs to billionaire Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. It is not known whether Mr Allen is aboard.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
