America's Cup: Emirates Team NZ race training in the Channel
Mon, 25 Mar 2013
Emirates Team NZ wrapped up their Friday training session with a series of windward leewards inside Rangitoto Light at the entrance to the Waitemata Harbour.
The session and crew-work, in particular, was very impressive and slick. There was not enough wind to make foiling viable at the bottom of the course, with the rounding mark again 200 metres off Narrowneck Beach.
Other images show what is believed to be the second wingsail for the team.
