America's Cup: Emirates Team NZ apparently concludes its NZ build up    
Thu, 4 Apr 2013

Emirates Team NZ have apparently concluded their NZ buildup according to media reports yesterday.

The team had an extended sailing session on the Hauraki Gulf which saw them sail well beyond Tiritiri Island at the northern end of the 2000/2003 America's Cup course.

The session got underway in the early afternoon after light winds prevailed for the early part of the day.

They sailed back to Rangitoto Light before hooking up and towing past the Wednesday evening race fleet

The team seems to be on their previously announced schedule of leaving NZ on April 16 and having their first sail in San Francisco on May 23, 2013.
