The AC72 yachts, according to the 2013 AC protocol, cannot be launched prior to July 2012 for testing. Racing will begin 2013. Designers and builders for each team will create their own hulls, wings, soft sails, and underwater foils within the confines of the rules, and will be allowed to test and refine their designs prior to the official measurements for the races
