After another training session on the Hauraki Gulf, Emirates Team NZ AC72, did a flypast in front of the Sail-World camera, as she sailed down Auckland's North Shore beaches and turned around North Head to enter the Waitemata Harbour .
It was another great day in New Zealand's best summer for over 70 years, with a lovely seabreeze which faded to just over 5kts at the time this sequence was taken..
Luna Rossa was out too, no practice racing today, and she returned to base early afternoon, under tow from her tender.
Thanks to Andrew Dickerson for a great piece of video editing.
