    The champagne's been broken, the boat blessed, and off she goes

    The champagne's been broken, the boat blessed, and off she goes


    Team New Zealand has launched their new boat for their 2021 defence of the America's Cup in Auckland.

    The boat named 'Te Aihe' - the Maori word for Dolphin, will be used as a test boat before the race vessel is finalised for April's World Series in Italy.

    Shore manager Sean Regan says having already spent 56-thousand man hours on production, the clock is ticking.
