Delicate shipment at Port of Tauranga

Emirates Team New Zealand America's Cup contender Aotearoa was delivered to the Port of Tauranga at the weekend.


The catamaran and its wings were taken by sea from Ports of Auckland on the Maersk Jubail and reloaded on to the Pescara, which will carry the delicate shipment to Oakland in San Francisco Bay.


The delivery was smooth despite bad weather.


For three weekends more than 70 40-foot containers will be shipped to San Francisco, including two 12m chase boats, a 14m catamaran tender, a hydraulic travel lift, two 40m-long wing sails - and the AC72 catamaran.
