Video from Emirates Team NZ's first day of sailing in their new second generation AC72, Aotearoa, on a light summer's day on the Hauraki Gulf
Grant Dalton before the AC72 was launched and sailed for the first time: 'The temptation today is just to go out and send it straight away and get her up on the foils. Although that is the temptation, that is not the way we are going to run it today. We are going to systematically load the boat, and take a few days to get to that stage. But it is really tempting to go out and send it and send a message. But we aren't going to do that today.'
