Sail-World's Richard Gladwell was there to catch the action as they ran through the Friday evening race fleet.
Today was the seventh day of testing for the New Zealand team - sailing this time in a beautiful sea breeze far out into the Hauraki Gulf. They returned with a fast run up the Rangitoto Channel, foiling perfectly and looking very stable. The crew work in the gybe looked very slick and the time through the gybe - foil to foil - was about the same speed as an 18fter crew would take wire to wire though the same manoeuvre.
