America's Cup: AC72 at Takapuna Beach - First reach and Downwind
Sat, 9 Mar 2013
Two challengers for the 34th America's Cup, Emirates Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa, had several practice racing sessions off Takapuna Beach, in a fresh offshore breeze, on March 8.
This set of images covers the first reach and downwind leg until they gybed.
Sail-World's NZ and America's Cup Editor captured the action from a camera position in the carpark at the end of Takapuna Reef, which extends about 150 metres from the shoreline.
