Emirates Team New Zealand have released a video of their AC75's first sail on Wednesday.

It shows Te Aihe sailing fast in light winds pursued by a chase boat travelling at what appears to be 20kts. The wind speed appears to be 8-10kts based on the sea state.

There's also reaction from the sailing crew, Blair Tuke and Glenn Ashby and a relieved boat builder Sean Regan.

"It was very short, but we get a view of the future", reflected CEO Grant Dalton after the sail.
