Emirates Team New Zealand produced yet another flawless run to edge out Luna Rossa on Tuesday and regain the lead in the Louis Vuitton Cup Final on San Francisco Bay.
Despite a good start from the Italians, Dean Barker’s men stepped it up a gear at the midway mark and held on for the win as their rivals were eventually forced to abandon after damaging the control arm of their wing.
This win sees Emirates Team New Zealand take a 2-1 lead over Luna Rossa with the next two races taking place on Wednesday.
The winner of the best-of-13 finals will lock horns with reigning champion Oracle Team USA in the 34th edition of the America’s Cup which gets underway in September.
