With the leadup to the 36th America's Cup kicking off tomorrow, we couldn't resist resharing the iconic Kiwi single 'Sailing Away.

First released for the 1987 America's Cup, the video features billowing sails and an impressive array of mid-80s celebrities, including Dave Dobbyn, Billy T James and Tim Finn - who else can you spot?

Borrowed from 'Pokarekare Ana,' 'Sailing Away' set a record for the most consecutive weeks at number one by New Zealand artists, until the arrival of Smashproof's 'Brother' in 2009.

Such a great tune!
