Four AC72s from three teams, including both Oracle boats and one each from Luna Rossa and ETNZ, were on the LVC/AC race course today in excellent conditions, practicing during a scheduled Reserve Day.

The session included some two-boat testing by Oracle's #1 and #2 boats, plus a few short drag-races between various boats, all under the watchful eyes of team support boats, who were carefully checking the strengths and weaknesses of all the boats.
