America's Cup: Sailing Ups and Downs in two Cities    
Fri, 16 Nov 2012

America's Cup Challengers are once again sailing out of two cities on opposite sites of the Pacific.

In San Francisco, Artemis Racing went sailing for the second day - with a little more breeze than on the first, and by all accounts had a good session.

In Auckland, Emirates Team NZ put in another five hours on the water today - after effecting repairs and alterations following Wednesday's seven hour session.

Today would have been the first day that Luna Rossa and Emirates Team NZ would have been on the water together, but for a pre-launch accident with the top of Luna Rossa's wingsail being damaged, injuring a crew member. Click here?nid=103839 for full story
