NEW AC72 WING COUNTDOWN: ONLY 8 DAYS REMAINING...
And for the fun, please have a look on the US truck that delivered the wingsail and the biggest hull crossbeams last June 12th, 2012 to Oracle Team at Pier 80 in South San Francisco.

Wing and crossbeams have been constructed by Core Builders Composites in Warkworth, NZ. The hulls have been built in USA, as the America's Cup Rules require.
Hulls, crossbeams and wingsail should be assembled BUT under Cup rules, Oracle can't launch the first defender AC72 before July 1st... The first cat sailing tests should start next August.
