Emirates Team New Zealand's America's Cup AC72 challenger took to the waters of San Francisco bay in brisk breeze to test newly installed modifications, including a shrouded bowsprit and two open box-like devices on the rear crossover section.

Emirates Team NZ made a few high-speed downwind and reaching passes near the Golden Gate bridge, where Chuck Lantz, of Sail-World's photo team, took these shots.
