Poll: Do you like the design of the new Team New Zealand's America's Cup vessel?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

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.

Will Auckland wharf be moved to another city by June?

Betty from Mount Wellington

My dear neighbour
One of my friend know a worker who works on Auckland wharf for a crane company . He said during these days a lot of ships come to Auckland wharf. So his boss wanted to bring more workers, but because their company do not belong to wharf union. The wharf union refused the extra workers to help. His boss wanted the shipment done faster, but wharf union refused all the solution. His boss complained, "Why Auckland wharf union are so narrow-minded." A few days later, their company's machinery were badly damaged and had to close down. Then most ships left for Tauranga and a few to Whangarei. That's why Kmart and other supermarket's shelves are empty.
I simply want the Aucklanders to know the truth.
I heard by June that crane company which suffered from the damage will not sign the new contract with Auckland council and leave Auckland wharf more lack of cranes and workers.
