America's Cup, three months until racing begins

It's been a month since we had our first glimpse of what two AC75's would look like on the Waitematā Harbour. The presence of American Magic's DEFIANT definitively steps up the intensity for everyone in the team, and with the arrival of two more teams over the next month, the Waitematā is going to get very busy as teams make the most of the three months remaining before racing kicks of in December.

Take a closer look at the technology and design rules that allow the AC75 to fly.

It was August 2012 when the sailing world was turned upside down by a 72 foot catamaran flying in the Hauraki Gulf. Emirates Team New Zealand had brought the foils to the America’s Cup and changed the face of top-level yacht racing forever. Nowadays foils are commonplace, but the engineering and sailing techniques needed to get the AC75 to fly are completely different from anything seen before.
