Read the latest newsletter from Sail-World New Zealand, with the Top 50 stories covering the America's Cup action and other sailing news from NZ and elsewhere.

There's all the latest reports, images and video on the AC75's - including the launch of Luna Rossa in Sardinia, and INEOS Team UK's Britannia launched in Portsmouth.

Most watched is Emirates Team New Zealand's Te Aihe, which regularly pulls a flotilla of spy boats, Kiwi fans and a multiplicity of fishing boats. American Magic seems to be maintaining a radio silence.

There is a design comparison of the four AC75 hulls that have been viewed to date.

The summer sailing is here - catch the opening race in the Sydney 18ft Skiff League.

On Monday, sadly a 47ft yacht sank 20nm off the New Zealand coast sailing in 60kts of wind and seas estimated at 9 metres. We have an updated report, along with video and images from the Auckland Rescue Trust helicopter - who effected the loss of four crew - sadly one died in the water
