America's Cup: Luna Rossa trains on the Hauraki Gulf
Sat, 10 Nov 2012
The Italian America's Cup Challenger, Luna Rossa was out on the Hauraki Gulf on Friday for what appeared to be a good training session in a light onshore breeze, which later changed to a moderate offshore breeze as she entered the Waitemata Harbour.
Sail-World's cameras were on hand to capture the sailing and welcome her home at the end of the day.
Emirates Team NZ is still in the shed, being speed-jumped, and she is expected out at the end of next week
