Two challengers for the 34th America's Cup, Emirates Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa, had several practice racing sessions off Takapuna Beach, in a fresh offshore breeze.

Sail-World's NZ and America's Cup Editor captured the action from a camera position in the carpark at the end of Takapuna Reef, which extends about 150 metres from the shoreline. At times the boats passed inside the line of 200 metre buoys off the beach.

Rounding the first mark (just visible astern of Luna Rossa) both boats are foiling at this point - but are yet to gybe - AC72 Race Practice - Takapuna March 8, 2013 -  Richard Gladwell_©   Click Here to view large photo
