China Team's CHN-79 painted in front the team's future base @ Valencia Sailing

The first ever America's Cup challennger from China has now finished painting the hull of its boat, CHN-79, with the colors of the shiny beautiful dragon and transported a couple of hundreds of meters from the temporary shed to the space in front of the future permanent base.In addition to the hull, the deck has also be painted while the technical team has installed the systems corresponding to the winches and outfitting of the superstructures. One of the shore crew's many tasks today was to fit the keel of the yacht, a job started shortly before we left, while, according to the team, the mast will be added at the beginning of next week.The team's schedule is to launch the boat on the 25th of April, leaving a scant two weeks for the red dragon and the crew to prepare for the Louis Vuitton Act 10 and face an uphill battle as during the first day of racing, China Team will have to sail against Luna Rossa and Alinghi.
