……AND THEN THERE WERE FOUR
Racing begins again today between the remaining four challengers for the right to race against Alinghi for the America’s Cup trophy.
Team Emirates NZ, as winners of the Louis Vuitton Round Robin series, get to choose who they want to race first and they have chosen Desafío Español, reasoning that the Spanish team are the least experienced of their three opponents. This leaves BMW Oracle facing up to Luna Rossa. This is a nine-race series to be held over the next twelve days; the first to five wins from each heat will go forward to the Finals.
The weather today is absolutely perfect, with a cool breeze and bright sky, we expect to see some excellent racing this afternoon from around 1500.
