America's Cup: Oracle Team USA's second wingsail starts journey to USA
Fri, 21 Dec 2012
The second wingsail for Oracle Team USA left Core Builders Composites facility in Warkworth this morning to begin its journey to San Francisco.
There the wingsail will be installed on the repaired USA-17, which is expected to be sailing in early February 2013.
Today's journey was similar to the previous one, with the load having to travel down the main highway, and then weave through some suburbs because of load height issues.
Along with several other photographers, Sail-World was on hand to catch the action as the load travelled over Auckland's Harbour Bridge
