    CHRISTMAS CUP + ACWS

    The Christmas Cup in New Zealand will be the first time all four teams will compete in their AC75 yachts. It will also be the only time that all four compete against each other in the same event, so it is sure to be an exciting showcase and preview for the official racing to come. The futuristic 75-foot foiling monohulls are capable of flying at breathtaking speeds and will be a truly spectacular sight as the teams battle it out on the waters of the Hauraki Gulf.
