Part 1 of this feature interview attracted lots of interest on the world stage, but now we have release Part 2 and Jimmy is much more direct.

Jimmy says 'It is sort of like a rugby game. You might be in the back line but every now and again you have got to get into the ruck and get the ball out. It’s not just Kiwis that can play that game!

The Sail-World team has been very busy in Auckland, where Emirates Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa are practicing. We will be releasing new vision in the next few hours that will cause heart ache for most Emirates Team NZ fans.

Even more so than previous America's Cups, the AC72 sailing and support crews are very dependent on weather predictions.

Today we feature a clip in which Emirates Team NZ tactician Ray Davies talks about how times have changed the weather – and how they make use of the weather data painstakingly gathered by Australian meteorologist Roger (Clouds) Badham so that the boat is configured to suit the conditions expected on race day.

The AC72's are quick 40 knots, but remember Australian Paul Larsen´s would record is 25 knots faster than that. But don’t miss the preview reports from the Salt and Speed competition, which will pit the world’s fastest kiteboarders on a man made course in Salins-de-Giraud, France to determine bragging rights.

September on Cleveland Bay and nearby waters. Magnetic Island Race Week is set to become part of an even larger event SailTownsville event. The Far North might have been last to start in the Race Week stakes but don´t be surprised if the FNQ mob surge as the years roll on.
