Welcome to Sail-World.com's New Zealand newsletter for 3 July 2011
We have an eclectic mix of news from around the world in this edition, including classic Eight and Twelve Metres racing in Germany, some of whom are over 100 years old. One is helmed by King Harald of Norway.
At the other end of the sailing spectrum we have the latest news images and plenty of video from the Extreme Sailing series, currently underway in Boston USA.
Plus we carry the format, just announced, of the Louis Vuitton Cup which will precede the 2013 America's cup in San Francsico.
Quite how many of the class of 2011, will make it through to the main Event remains to be seen. We have a preview of the first of the America's Cup World Series regattas which gets underway in Cascais, Portugal in early August.
