Louis Vuitton Cup – Round Robin 1, Race 2

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

Today was the second race of round robin 1 of the Louis Vuitton Cup. It was Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) against Artemis Racing. Artemis was a no-show because they are still working on getting their second boat ready after their first one was destroyed in a capsize in May. So it was a very lonely race of ETNZ against themselves. Still, it was very spectacular to see them on the water!

Before the race started, Oracle was practicing with their two boats.

And ETNZ did some practice runs as well before the start of the race.
