Louis Vuitton Cup – Round Robin 2, Race 1

This post is part of my America’s Cup in San Francisco blog post series.

Last week’s Louis Vuitton Cup sailing races were kind of strange as only one lonely boat worked the course. Today was the first time that two boats faced each other: Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) against Italy’s Luna Rossa Challenge (LR). ETNZ showed how well they master their AC72 while LR proved that their boat is fast (specially downwind), but that the team needs more training to better and more consistently handle it.

Here are a few shots of Emirates Team New Zealand’s well deserved win against Luna Rossa.
