Another milestone in the 34th America's Cup occurred today, November 19,2012 with two AC72's sailing on the Hauraki Gulf for the first time.
For much of the session Luna Rossa confined herself to being well offshore, while Emirates Team NZ was much closer to the Takapuna shore.
According to the real-time weather reporting facility in Predictwind the conditions in the Gulf were 12kts gusting 17kts at Tiritiri Island, and 15-20kts inshore at Bean Rock.
Later Sail-World's camera caught Luna Rossa on her mooring at sunset
