Emirates Team New Zealand has started back on the final push of the 2013 America's Cup with the re-commissioning of the team's AC45 and a work-out against fellow Challenger Luna Rossa (Italy).
With the ETNZ AC72 decommissioned and stored in the boat shed and the second AC72 yet to be delivered to the base for assembly, the sailing crew took to the water to sharpen up and practice for the next ACWS regatta.
The regatta will be held at Naples, Italy, in April. It will be the last of the ACWS AC45 regattas as competitors switch focus totally to the AC72 and the Louis Vuitton Cup challenger series which starts on July 4.
