Super Sunday Upset!

Not such a super Sunday for Emirates Team New Zealand as again they have been pipped to the post by the Italians in similar fashion to last years Americas Cup World Series event in Naples.

Luna Rosa Swordfish (helmsman Francesco Bruni) after taking out ETNZ in the match racing (literally) have taken out the fleet racing win in Naples ahead of Oracle (Slingsby) in second and ETNZ in third. Roles were reversed in the match racing with Slingsby beating Bruni in the match racing finals which took place just before the fleet racing.

In winning the match racing final and coming second in the fleet racing, Oracle’s Slingsby has secured the overall series double for the rest of the team (still in San Francisco looking after the AC72programme) and take home the Americas Cup World Series Trophy for the 2012-2013 series. Good to see the kiwis finishing in second for the 2012-2013 season for the match racing segment – as at the end of the day, those are the skills they will need to win back the cup.

That wraps up the Americas Cup World Series for the season – bring on the Americas Cup! We will have to wait and see as to what becomes of the series after the conclusion of the upcoming Americas Cup. Will we see another series? It has to be said though no matter where the future leads us, this series has brought a wealth of interest back into the cup and a new level of excitement with close quarters racing often in vary close proximity to public viewing.
