 Louis Vuitton Trophy  La Maddalena ITA  Day 16  Kiwis stage comeback win
‘Team New Zealand’ NZ came back from a 0-2 deficit to win three consecutive races and the Louis Vuitton Trophy in La Maddalena ITA against ‘Synergy Sailing Team’ RUS. It was the first time in America’s Cup history that a Russian-flagged boat has reached the final as the international crew led by Polish skipper Karol Jablonski came very close to clinching the series. Especially Race 4 was close, which the Russians lost due to a penalty they incurred after making contact with the Kiwis downwind. In the last race they trailed and lost their gennaker. The report and the video clips of the final day including interviews with the finalists.
