Sail-World New Zealand: 14 January 2011

The first AC45 hulls arrive at the Oracle base in Auckland's Viaduct basin.   Chris Cameron
Welcome to Sail-World.com's New Zealand newsletter for 14 January 2011

This newsletter comes to you from Melbourne, Australia - we're back in Auckland on Monday, hopefully in time to catch the launch of the America's Cup AC45 prototype at Auckland's Viaduct Basin.

In this edition we feature the first images of the AC45, and also the filming of the wingsail over the carbon frame.

All will become clearer when the platform and wingsail are put together.

Thanks to our contributors for their help and input, we're here to help sailing, and help those who wish to help themselves. A special thanks to those who have contributed to this edition.

Good sailing!
