'Emirates Team NZ lines up windward on her first beat - Emirates Team NZ - AC72 Aotearoa February 12, 2013'    Richard Gladwell ©    Click Here to view large photo

Sail-World' s Richard Gladwell was on the water today for the first sail of Emirates Team NZ's second generation AC72, launched on February 4, 2013.

Here's the second gallery of images of the 72ft catamran sailing for the frist time in a light seabreeeze of less than 8kts.

Features in these images imclude the non-appearance of the centre pod around the main load strut, designed to put an endplate on the wingsail and tidy up airflow beneath the platform.

The massive 'tail' on the daggerboard is clearly visible.

Bows look narrower than in the first AC72 - reducing drag, but also meaning that the team is more confident of the foils doing the work in a bearway or pressured downwind situation to avaoid a pitchpole.

The camber being induced into the wingsail, to generate power in the light winds, is apparent in some shots.

Mast support arrangement lacks the pod. Note length and shape of daggerboard on port hull - AC72 Aotearoa February 12, 2013 -  Richard Gladwell_©   Click Here to view large photo
