In a race that had to be seen to be believed, race #8 of the America’s Cup saw over a 2000m lead by Luna Rossa, turn into a 1800m deficit! In less than 2 legs. Both boats, sailed into light air at different points of the race course with Luna Rossa so parked up it was hard to believe. Kiwis in a romp.
ETNZ now has a a commanding 5-3 lead, and with help from the wind gods and a clear boatspeed advantage, it will take something even more bizarre than this race for LR to get back in the game.
