Building continues apace at Core Composites - BMW Oracle Racing's building facility in Warkworth, 40 minutes drive north of Auckland. Top photographer, Ivor Wilkins checked out the action earlier this week, and presents these images of the wingsail under construction for the AC45's.

The construction detail involved in these structures is very complex - making the manufacture of the hulls look simple in comparison.
