American Magic, one of Team New Zealand’s challengers for the America’s Cup have completed their first day of testing.

In contrast, three other challenging syndicates, INEOS Team UK, Italy’s Luna Rossa and Stars and Stripes USA, have yet to arrive.

American Magic have spent almost five months in New Zealand, preparing their boat.

Their session today lasted five hours on the Waitemata Harbour.

American Magic represent that syndicate from the New York Yacht Club. One of the most famous yacht clubs in the world.

Their AC-75 foiling boat, named Defiant, spent much of the training session sailing around areas that organisers have designated as five potential race courses.
