Head scratching during race 3 - Americas Cup Colin Preston
During the break between races some spectators discussed race tactics while others inspected Emirates Team NZ first hydro-foiling daggerboard and their AC72 model used by ETNZ in The University of Aucklands twisted wind tunnel facility. This was followed by another subdued crowd as Emirates Team NZ suffered their first defeat of the 34th Americas Cup, although by only eight seconds.
Organised by the Auckland Tourism Events and Economic Development Ltd a repeat event is yet to be decided on.
