America's Cup challenger arrives in Auckland

From Morning Report, 8:29 am on 1 July 2020

American Magic's first AC75, named 'Defiant', has docked in Auckland - it's the first of the America's Cup challengers to arrive ahead of next years event.

It took more than a month for the foiling monohull to be transported here, now it just needs some crew.

Terry Hutchinson the skipper and Executive Director of American Magic, told Corin Dann he's not really paying attention to the controversy around Team New Zealand, he's focussed on getting his team into Aotearoa, and out on the water.
