America Cup World series 2013- Naples
Sun, 21 Apr 2013
Americas Cup World Series event takes its third day course today in the shoreline of Naples. Today, we have had two match races and two fleet races.Every maneuver counted due to the weather changes that is the stronger winds, choppy waters and darker skies hence one wrong move was hard to make up for in the end.
In match race one we saw ORACLE Team USA- Slingsby defeat J.P. Morgan BAR in one of the best match races of the event so far. It was neck and neck with only a few metre between the boats. There was no shortage of experience on this course with both helmsmen having won Olympic gold medals this past summer in London.
Artemis Racing White, only participating in the fleet racing, ended up with a sixth and an eighth leaving them seventh overall. All part of the Swedish Youth Challenge’s helmsman’s valuable preparation for the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup in September.
Today is the final day of America’s Cup World Series with triple points for the winner of the fleet racing.
Fleet Racing Emirates Team New Zealand (NZL): 60 ORACLE TEAM USA SLINGSBY (USA): 55 J.P. Morgan BAR (GBR): 52 Luna Rossa Piranha (ITA): 50 Energy Team (FRA): 42 Luna Rossa Swordfish (ITA): 40 Artemis Racing White (SWE): 31 HS Racing (USA): 26 China Team (CHN): 22
