The first sail was conducted ahead of a strong wind forecast for Friday and was a test of the boats sails, supplied by www.northsails.co.nz!North_Sails_NZ and spars and rigging from www.southernspars.com!Southern_Spars
Sail-World understands that full sea trialling and workup will begin in earnest in early March before Emirates Team NZ is shipped to Europe for the 2009 MedCup circuit.
Cookson Boats have two more race yachts underway at 52ft and 80ft in the North Shore yard.
