Louis Vuitton Cup: Chuck Lantz's view of Day 4 in San Francisco
Sun, 14 Jul 2013
One of Sail-World's photographers, Chuck Lantz, was shoreside on San Francisco Bay, and filed this impression of the day, along with an image gallery.
Haze, some leftover fog and long lens shots from the windward mark were the order of the day as ETNZ pounced on Luna Rossa from the start. They never let-up, winning decisively on Day 4 of the Louis Vuitton Cup elimination series.
The good and bad news for shore-side spectators was that today's currents and wind kept the marks farther offshore than usual.
The good news is that the water-borne police and their minions were out in force, and - finally - keeping all view-blocking civilian boat traffic from the corridor between the shore and the race course.
Views from shore being blocked by spectator boats were a major complaint during the America's Cup World Series, so it's good to see some progress on that front.
