Prada Cup - Auckland NZL - Final - First Races Saturday

 Prada Cup - Auckland NZL - Final - First Races Saturday Ben Ainslie GBR with his INEOS Team UK and Francesco Bruni ITA/James Spithill AUS on Luna Rossa will meet for the first two duels on Saturday. We will be broadcasting live on sailing-news.us early in the morning from 2am UTC. The replay will be available all day. ----- Both teams are in their final training sessions, .... new foils and sails are being used... high tension for the outcome. While the first weekend will see mainly lighter winds, the forecast for Wednesday is strong, maybe even too strong above the max-limit of 21kn. ----- The last two duels between the teams in the Round Robin were both won by the English, but one was decided only shortly before the finish after 9 leader changes. Another match that Luna Rossa was leading by far was abandoned due to the time limit being exceeded. Balanced duels are to be expected!! ----- The preview.
