    Jimmy Spithill steering away from collisions talk following launch of Luna Rossa's second America's Cup boat

    His skipper thinks there could be collisions but helmsman Jimmy Spithill is steering away from such talk following the launch of Luna Rossa's second America's Cup boat in Auckland today


    The Italians have unveiled a sleek new version of their AC75.

    Skipper Max Sirena thinks with everyone pushing so hard the boats could come together during the pre start when the Christmas Cup regatta starts in December.

    Spithill says contact could prove disastrous.
