Team New Zealand's secret weapon
Eight days out from the start of the America's Cup match between Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa in Auckland, it appears the defender has a new weapon.
The large, traditional style sail, according to experts, would allow the AC75 vessel Te Rehutai to keep trucking towards the finish line if winds dropped dramatically, and the boat fell off its foils.
Herald sports writer Chris Rattue describes it as a sail that "could sink Luna Rossa's America's Cup hopes in very light airs".
Luna Rossa with an edge?
The defender is widely viewed as the favourites to retain the Auld Mug, but American Magic helmsman and former Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker believes the Italians could have the advantage in one key area.
