The Emirates Team New Zealand advance party are on the ground in #bermuda already well into base construction after a few days. 29 Maersk Group containers & 1 Tower Cranes NZ Ltd crane on site, more on the way and plenty of hard work ahead!
On the future of the America's Cup:
Emirates Team New Zealand believe the future America's Cup format should be decided by the Defender and Challenger of Record as it has historically been.
Congrats to Armel Le Cléac'h for one of the most thrilling finishes ever seen so far in the Vendee Globe.

74 days and almost 24,500 nautical miles of non-stop solo round the world race without assistance, one of the toughest sporting challenges known to man #VG2016 #ETNZ
