Meet Team New Zealand's new America's Cup boat.
Te Rehutai was seen foiling under sail on its first outing after its Thursday night launch.
She was towed out from the team's base on Friday morning and got up on her foils while under tow during the planned test programme of sailing on the Waitemata Harbour.

We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.
ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!

Hi Auckland neighbours,
A leading coronavirus expert is urging the Government to make scanning mandatory at such potential "super-spreader" venues as bars and nightclubs.
The pleas follow figures revealing daily use of the Covid Tracer app has plummeted to a fifth of its peak.
Last Monday, a total of 515,759 scans were recorded nationwide, down from the high of 2.5 million on September 4.
Epidemiologist Dr Michael Baker said the next six months would be a “very dangerous” time for the country with a high risk of an outbreak while waiting for the vaccine roll-out in April.

According to ACC, falls are the most common way kiwis injure themselves with most injuries occurring at home and a large portion due to feet slipping or skidding. Fortunately, many of these types of accidents can be prevented by keeping walking surfaces free of dirt, mold, moss, and other substances that tend to reduce traction, particularly when combined with water.
In a recently completed Devonport job, a beautiful north-facing staircase and pathways had become slippery with dirt and mold and were definitely tricky when wet. Exactly the kind of condition leading to this common injury. The likelihood of slipping has been reduced massively after a couple of hours of careful eco-friendly pressure-washing.
There’s more than one win! Clean surfaces are often more pleasing aesthetically - so, in addition to safety, there’s that as well 😊.
