Things are starting to heat up in Auckland in the run up to the first regatta of the America's Cup. The America's Cup Christmas regatta kicks off in early December and the Teams are in the process of getting their second gen boats in the water and tuned in time. American Magic launched Patriot yesterday and took her for her first shakedown sail.
Today INEOS Team UK launched Britannia (Rita).
Below are some of the shots I was able to get of the boat and the christening ceremony.
