The AC72

This is the Team New Zealand AC72.
At Eden Park Bed and Breakfast I remember the fever that existed in Auckland when New Zealand held the Americas Cup.’Which is why you will now see me writing about Team New Zealand and this amazing boat called AC72. Bring on the Fever…….
This design is what we will challenge In for the Americas Cup next year.
Baring any major disaster (sic. oracle pitch pole last week) this team is now in a serious dominant position over Oracle-Team America.
Team New Zealand have this boat finning. This is where both hulls are out of the water and riding on hydrofoil fins attached to drop down dagger boards. The drag reduction of the hulls is minimised and speed increases.
Very Cool……
