Oracle Team USA's photographer, Guilain Grenier provides this look behind the building shed door at Oracle Team USA, as they make the final touches on the rebuilt and repaired USA-17, which was badly damaged in a capsize on San Francisco Bay in October 2012.
The AC72 catamaran is expected to be launched early next week and sailing towards the end of the week, in San Francisco.
Beams and a sprit for Oracle Team USA's second AC72 were transported from Core Builders Composites at Warkworth, Auckland to the port of Auckland, earlier today.
