Take the helm of Emirates Team New Zealand’s high tech secret weapon.

It uses Spark 5G data collected on the water to help them push boat design to its limit.

Test your skills at the helm or take charge of the foils as you fly across the Waitematā.

From trying tactics in different weather conditions to experimenting with engineering solutions, this AC75 Simulator allows Emirates Team New Zealand to make real-time decisions using Spark 5G. Now it’s your turn.  

In this simulator there are two players: Helmsman and Foil Trimmer and your aim is to pass through as many gates as you can in the fastest time possible. Emirates Team New Zealand have pulled data from the boat via 5G to help refine the simulator.

Can you do better than the sailors?
