Luna Rossa sail into final of America's Cup challenger series

Italy’s Luna Rossa have sailed into the final of the America’s Cup challenger series after beating Artemis Racing 4-0 at San Francisco Bay in California.

The Swedish syndicate, Artemis, made a strong start and took an early lead, however several penalties ended their hopes of fighting back in the best of seven series. The Italians crossed the finish line 2 minutes and 11 seconds ahead of them.

Luna Rossa will now face Emirates Team New Zealand in the final. The winner of the best of 13 series will face defending champion Oracle Team USA for the America’s Cup, which starts on August 17th.
