America's Cup: Images from the Viaduct Harbour launching ceremony

'July 21, 2012 America’s Cup - Emirates Team NZ Launch at the Viaduct Harbour, Auckland. Emirates Team NZ’s AC72 in front of the crowded Viaduct Events Centre'    Richard Gladwell    Click Here to view large photo

Emirates Team NZ's AC72 was launched in Auckland's Viaduct harbour as fans packed all the vantage points around the Viaduct Events Centre.

After being christened by Mandy Barker, the first AC72 launched in the world, was ringed by fire, and then the fans were treated to a short fireworks display (not a great idea around a 40metre tall wingsail in a fresh breeze!)

The SkyTower in Auckland was dressed in red light for the occasion.
