I think Jimmy did very well, but I think there will be a few changes come Thursdays races.
Today Emirates Team New Zealand took its AC72 out sailing on San Francisco Bay for the very first time.
It was to be a light shake down but all systems were go and so was the AC72 foiling around the bay.
Get used to the sight, it will be a frequent one over the coming months.

After a dramatic few days for Emirates Team New Zealand, they have now got the AC72 wing sail back on track as it’s hoisted again.
Interesting to hear Dalts say they only have about 10 more lifts to go!!

So finally Emirates Team New Zealand got it a bit wrong yesterday, when craning the AC72 wing into place.
The news suggest that this was wing number 1 and not the new wing number 2, but it was supposed to be number 2’s first outing when this video was captured.
From the reports the damage is minimal taking just a day or two to repair, but more importantly there were no injuries at all, which I think is pretty impressive.
