Sail-World.com : Louis Vuitton: Comfortable win for Emirates Team NZ in first real race
Louis Vuitton: Comfortable win for Emirates Team NZ in first real race


'13/07/2013 - San Francisco (USA CA) - 34th America’s Cup -'    ACEA/Photo Abner Kingman©    Click Here to view large photo

Emirates Team New Zealand won the first race by a margin of five and a half minutes, sailed in wind conditions that were close to the top end of the new lowered wind limit, averaging 17kts and peaking at over 19kts.

Emirates Team NZ controlled the start pinning Luna Rossa to windward and well away from the start line. At gunfire, the New Zealanders bore away and reached to the start line at speed of 34kts, before starting the race several seconds after the start signal. But even before the start we saw the story of the race with some quite significant speed differences between the boats even though they were on the same leg of the course.

They proceeded to hit 40kts on the first reach with the Italians maintaining early contact, rounding the first mark 8 secs astern as they headed onto he first downwind leg.

At the bottom mark the margin had stretched to 30 seconds, a combination of better top speeds and more consistent high speeds from the very polished New Zealand boat.

At Mark 3 the margin started to blow out to be just over two minutes, with Luna Rossa inadvertently sailing outside the boundary on the next leg and she received a delay penalty.

The margin incraesed steadily around the course with the final margin being 5minutes 23 seconds in favour of Emirates Team NZ.
