'Double trouble - Emirates Team NZ’s AC72 returns to Auckland after her seventh day of sailing.'    Richard Gladwell    Click Here to view large photo

Welcome to Sail-World.com's New Zealand newsletter for September 14, 2012

Emirates Team New Zealand dropped in in the regular Friday afternoon Rum Race, giving the fleet a tickle-up as she did another Foiling Flypast on the Waitemata.

Sail-World's cameras were in position and caught the AC72 as she reached down the Rangitoto shore before gybing and flying up the harbour.

The sight was spectacular to say the least, with a 12kt seabreeze - not much more. The AC72 was very quickly onto her foils, and was very steady in flight - not an easy feat on foils.

Gybing, she looked very good through the eye of the wind, dropping into the water briefly before the power came back on and she was foil-borne once again. The time taken through the gyble was about the same as an 18fter takes to wire to wire gybe.

One thing is for sure in San Francisco, we won't be seeing too much match racing if these boats are foiling - just a matter of keeping out of the way of the right of way boat, and then letting/hoping your boatspeed is sufficient to carry the day.

In this edition of Sail-World we have several stories on the AC72's including one on a new Measurement Committee ruling on a new style of l'Hydroptere style hydrofoil that will be permitted.

In another story we look at the edge that Emirates Team NZ would seem to have gained over the two other AC72's - which are sidelined through daggerboard or wingsail damage. Emirates Team NZ is now in her seventh day of testing - of the 30 days allowed before February 1, 2013. But as we note in the story, these early days are vital to get test data which can then be used to develop and refine the second boats which will be built for the three teams.

Overall sailing team between the teams currently building is likely to be the same as Emirates Team NZ and Luna Rossa will lose time in transit to San Francisco, but the early days are vital - and it was certainly not in the game-plan of the two San Francisco based teams, to be sitting in the shed right now, while repair work takes place.

We've had a bit of reaction to the commentary piece on the Media and the 2012 Olympics. We feature the letters in this edition - along with further comment. The point of the commentary is to highlight the differences in approach to the media by teams. Too often the media is criticised for poor, sloppy or non-existent coverage of the sport - but the responsibility often lies with the teams, and this has a bounce-down effect on the rest of the sport. Others really milk their media coverage and get the profile for their sport that they deserve - which brings in new sailor and talent many of which could have gone elsewhere.
