Louis Vuitton Cup: Emirates Team NZ rolls over Luna Rossa again
Wed, 24 Jul 2013
Emirates Team NZ ran away and hid from Luna Rossa again today, in a replay of their previous match race.
This time, Emirates Team NZ kept her jib up and secure. In their previous meeting, their jib halyard shackle broke early in the race. With no spare onboard, they continued under main alone, still easily defeating Luna Rossa.
Today, Emirates Team NZ showed more of her speed and skill, leading from the start, which was delayed for a short time while Luna Rossa switched rudders. For details, read Bob Fisher's race report. Photos by Sail-World's on-site photographer, Chuck Lantz.
