Emirates Team New Zealand will reveal its AC72 catamaran at a public event at Viaduct Harbour on Saturday, July 21.

The team is promising a spectacular 'launch day' for the big catamaran which another step forward in the team’s campaign to win the 2013 America’s Cup at San Francisco.

Team managing director Grant Dalton says July 21 will be a big day for the team. 'We have been working towards the day for 18 months. Until now we have said very little about the AC72 project and we have shown even less.

'The design team of more than 30 people has been working since the end of 2010. The build team started in August last year. The AC72 represents more than 50 man-years of design time and 65,000 hours of build time.

'The design and build work has gone ahead behind closed doors. Now it’s time to share their creation with New Zealand.

'The team will be celebrating and we invite people to celebrate with us. He said the July 21 show is free to the public. 'People will have great views from the Halsey Street wharf, from public areas around the Viaduct Events Centre and from the area around the liftingbridge.

'The action takes place on the water bounded by the Halsey Street wharf and the bridge.'

He urges people to arrive at the Viaduct by 5.30pm. 'The first few hundred will have the opportunity to be part of the launch crew. The show will get underway by 5.45pm.'

Should the weather refuse to cooperate on the Saturday July 21, the show will go on the following day, Sunday July 22.
