Big cat launch

17 Jul

It’s been a behind doors thing involving 65,000 hours, or 50-man years, to design and build. But next Saturday, July 21, the Emirates Team New Zealand new catamaran Ac72 will be unveiled as it is launched on Viaduct Harbour. The event (free to attend) is open to the public with good viewing from Halsey Street wharf, Events Centre, and various areas around the basin. Those attending are advised to be in position by 5.30 pm, with the promised spectacular event kicking off at 5.45 pm. The big cat has been built for next year’s America’s Cup challenge in San Francisco.
