Oracle starts sailing season in New Zealand


The Oracle BMW Racing team starts a two-boat sailing programme this week from the team’s base in Auckland, New Zealand.

In a sight reminiscent of a year ago in the Viaduct Basin, the team’s chase boats lead the America’s Cup Class boats USA-71 and USA-76 from the dock each morning.

The team tows out to the Hauraki Gulf for two-boat sailing where they will collect data for the design process as well as develop the crew work on the race boats. Sailing during the New Zealand summer provides an “off-season” opportunity to get some time on the water during the Northern Hemisphere winter.
