Still in the grip of Fremantle fervour, Buffet took to the Auckland waves last week on city yacht Slow Hand with Herbs’ Charlie Tumahai (left) and Tama Lundon.

The trio got together last week when Herbs played support for shows by the Florida singer at the Mandalay.

Buffet, a compulsive yachtie, toured Australia during the America’s ‘Cup final.

With Denis Conner Buffet sailed Stars and Stripes during tune-up races for the final clash against Kookabura II.

Buffet said he learnt a few tricks from the winning skipper which he will apply to jaunts around the Florida coast.
