Shirley Robertson and the CNN Mainsail team have been DownUnder in December and filed these three video reports on the state of the America's Cup programs in New Zealand and Australia.

Robertson, a double Olympic Gold Medalist, talks with Emirates Team New Zealand Grant Dalton and Dean Barker, plus top international commentator, Peter Montgomery. Barker also takes her for a spin around the race track in his saloon car.

Across the Tasman, she sails on Wild Oats XI, and talks with the Challenger of Record Principal, Sandy Oatley, and the CEO of Team Australia, iain Murray.

Catch all three video's - these may be blocked for a time in some territories - the choices are to wait until they become unblocked, or invest in a software product such as Hotspot Shield.
