Americans dispensed with presentations
This sensational shot appeared on the Web just a few hours ago: before you is the AC75 – a yacht built by the New York American Magic team, a participant in the 36th draw of the America's Cup.
Pompous presentations on launching their AC75, the Americans – unlike the owners of the New Zealanders Cup – did not. But already managed to test the boat in conditions close to combat, – under sails and in foyles. While the Emirates Team New Zealand yacht had to be towed all the last days: the mast was delivered only today.
A shot of the New York AC75 taken north of Newport (Rhode Island) – not far from where the American Magic base is located.
In fact, it was planned that the second team after the New Zealanders, which will launch the AC75 into the water, will be the Italian Luna Rossa. But there, they say, they encountered "little technical problems."
