America's Cup

ETNZ show-off their foiling on home waters

The final round of the 2015-2016 Louis Vuitton America's World Cup Series will take place in Fukuoka, Japan in mid November.

Here in a relaxed puff-piece by Glenn Ashby, ETNZ show-off their upwind foiling ability on the AC45 turbo boat in Auckland and they throw in a foiling tack (or was it a gybe) at the end.

ETNZ are still in the hunt to win the series overall if they have a really good regatta in Japan.

They have closed on Oracle, reducing the gap to only three points, and are 17 points off the overall leader, Land Rover BAR.
