VIDEO: Some fun on April Fools’ Day

Leave it to the Kiwis to have some fun on this April Fools’ Day. America’s Cup syndicate Emirates Team New Zealand today issued a “press release” announcing how it has found an edge in training for the big race this summer in San Francisco.

“While this particular innovation was not in their plans at the initial design stage, the addition is one of a continuing performance-enhancing evolution, and Emirates Team New Zealand managing director Grant Dalton expects this one to attract a lot of attention,” according to the announcement, which includes a video.

"I am expecting a lot of noise about it, especially from the sailors on other teams, who I am sure will feel that they are missing out,” Dalton said in the video.

“Everything you do is not only about designing the fastest boat,” adds skipper Dean Barker, “but finding ways to improve that boat. We’re always looking for new features and new ideas on how to make the boat go faster, and we’re very excited about this new development.”
