Team New Zealand has announced that they're planning a new IACC regatta next February. The fleet and match-racing event, sailed in IACC-class boats, will include entries from Team New Zealand, GBR Challenge, Victory Challenge (SWE), and OneWorld. Team New Zealand will be sailing NZL-60, the boat that successfully defended the Cup in 2000. Oracle, Prada and Alinghi haven't accepted invitations
"The regatta will combine of the open waters of the Hauraki Gulf with the confines of the inner Waitemata Harbour," said Team New Zealand executive director Tony Thomas. "If we get the right conditions, we could get a spectacular spinnaker run in front of the City and under the Harbour Bridge."
