Last Wednesday, Emirates Team New Zealand's AC75 was out for her second sailing session of the week - and did two others later in the week well beyond camera range. Yesterday the Auckland weather was initially very marginal - with light winds and cold, miserable rain. That session proved to be a long one in "The Paddock".

Here's some more shots from last Wednesday, and a few on the following days as they gave the AC75 a good working over, on America's Cup Course C - between North Head and Bastion Point. The light was not that good with it being just after the shortest day with the sun well to the north.

While legal action was firing up ashore, the sailors went sailing.

We also catch the debut of American Magic on the Waitemata - with their chase boat making its first appearance.
