    INEOS  Team UK will begin adjusting to their new boat on the Waitemata Harbour this afternoon

    INEOS Team UK will begin adjusting to their new boat on the Waitemata Harbour this afternoon


    The team's launched Britannia 2 at Auckland's Viaduct, which has a notable narrower hull than their first boat Britannia 1.

    Skipper Sir Ben Ainslie says the hull isn't the only thing they have to get used to.



    The British challenge is the second team to launch its new boat after American Magic, with Luna Rossa to unveil its second boat on Tuesday.
