American Magic, the New York Yacht Club's entry in the 36th America's Cup, has released the first team video of their AC75 surrogate nick named "The Mule" as she foils on Narragansett Bay.

In this revealing video we can see the 38ft long Mule tucked into the team's base and also shots from the building shed.

Then it is time for her to be rigged and splashed for the first time, with a good look at her foils which are quite a different shape from those seen in INEOS Team UK's monohulled foiler.

After a brief run in displacement mode it is flight time and we can see how easily the AC75 surrogate lifts onto her foils and enjoys stable flight
