His first hands-on experience of the America’s Cup came in 1992. At the urging of Douglas Myers, Blake agreed to join the team in San Diego.

However, it was Italy that finally emerged to face the US for the America's Cup. Through the Millennium summer, Team New Zealand engaged in a persistent system of practice, testing and development. Once again, the New Zealand superiority was overwhelming and the Italian challenge was despatched with a 5-0 scoreline. After the 2000 success, Sir Peter Blake stood down from Team New Zealand.

Sir Peter Blake taught others that goal setting was important but only important if the goal was difficult, as he once said “we had achieved one goal, but now there is a new one. Goal setting is very important and unless the goal is a difficult one, it is hardly worth bothering about.” He also taught people about the environment he said “Earth is a water planet on which the quality of water defines the quality of life. Good water, good life. Poor Water, poor life. No water, no life.”

Red Socks Day Sir Peter Blake liked to wear his red socks for good luck, and during the America’s Cup Challenge of 1995 New Zealanders supported the boat by putting on their own red socks. The Sir Peter Blake Trust brought back the red socks in 2010, and over 80,000 New Zealanders celebrated on Red Socks Day. In 2011, Red Socks Day will be held during Leadership Week on Friday 8th July – to encourage schools, organisations and individuals throughout New Zealand to celebrate leadership in action and to remember a great New Zealand leader, Sir Peter Blake.
