In less than 24 hours a second bold new America’s Cup race boat has been launched on Auckland’s Viaduct in New Zealand.

INEOS TEAM UK have today christened BRITANNIA, their second AC75 exactly two months before the start of racing for the PRADA ACWS Auckland.

The Brits new boat reveals significant differences not only from their previous AC75 but also from the others launched so far showing once again that there is not a sure path to follow to develop the fastest boat for this edition of the America's Cup.
