All three Challengers are sailing their race boats in Auckland.

New Zealand celebrated Labour Day on Monday, and unusually was blessed with summer weather for the three day break.

Like most we headed out of town for a final break before the start of the America's Cup Regattas in mid December.

Luna Rossa had their first and only sail to date on Saturday afternoon.

American Magic sailed several days in the past week, as have INEOS Team UK.

The sea breeze was up in the weekend and Tuesday - blowing 15-18kts. A front moved through on Thursday bringing a northerly breeze of 15kts. INEOS Team UK trained in the old America's Cup course area in the Hauraki Gulf. American Magic headed the other way - east - training in The Paddock of eastern Beach or Course E

Here's a collection of video and still images from the past few days.

Many thanks to Simon and Tanya Roberts for the on the water images.
