How a red boat shaped the Kiwi Cup future

I've been itching to tell this story since I got NZL20 formed the foundations for 29 years of Kiwi participation in the America's Cup and how the bright red boat played a major part in bringing the Cup to New Zealand. On the eve of the 36th America's Cup, where so little is known about the relative performances of the Challenger and the Defender, this is an apt reminder about how New Zealand has led the technology charge for so many years and how a winning formula can go wrong in a heartbeat. Out of lockdown and back on the road, I head out of Auckland to find out more about this fascinating boat and how it shaped the future. Click on the pic or on the link below
