America’s Cup Rialto photo

Sail-World was on the water for the first day of practice for the America’s Cup World Series and Xmas Cup, staged on the Hauraki Gulf in a breeze that topped the 21kt average wind limit for the series, but moderated as the day went on.

Here’s an image gallery of the US Challenger, American Magic who trained at the start of the session against Emirates Team New Zealand doing several starts. However after three starts Patriot pulled up after twice appearing to suffer rudder wing ventilation.
