Louis Vuittton Cup: Highlights of Races 4 + 5 by Chuck Lantz


'Luna Rossa nose-dives on the way to the finish in race 5. - America’s Cup 2013'    Chuck Lantz    Click Here to view large photo

Blue skies prevailed along with bright sun for two good races between Emirates Team NZ and Luna Rossa.

Emirates Team NZ won both the fourth and fifth races of the challenger elimination series.

No major problems were experienced with either boat, and much closer races than anything seen previously in the Lousi Vuitton Cup, made for a good day all around.

Even Max Sirena of Luna Rossa had a few smiles as he recounted the race details for the media a few minutes after the finish of Race 5.

Sirena's boat looked good out there, and but for a few tactical decisions, Luna Rossa might have prevailed.
