America's Cup: Emirates Team NZ puts in another day on the water
Sat, 27 Oct 2012
While the Italian America's Cup Luna Rossa, was preparing for their launch party. Emirates Team NZ were putting in another day out in the Hauraki Gulf - this was their 14th.
That mark is just short of the halfway point in terms of days sailed. Oracle Team USA will now not use any more of their allocated 30days available before February 1, having put in just eight on the water. Luna Rossa and Artemis Racing are yet to start their sailing programs.
Winds were recorded as blowing a modest 15-20kts from the SSW - ETNZ's Chris Cameron was on hand to capture the action.
