    American Magic's confident they can cope with any conditions thrown at them in the America's Cup


    Yesterday, as Team New Zealand launched their new AC75, Patriot was the only one of the three challengers sailing on the Waitemata in 25 knots of breeze.

    Team New Zealand's new boat sailed for the first time this afternoon.
