The team won the Louis Vuitton Cup in 2000 and finished runner-up to the New Zealand team in 2007. We are proud of what we achieved, said Luna Rossa skipper Max Sirena. No one was putting us in the Louis Vuitton Cup Final one-and-a-half years ago. Im proud of all the work done by the team. I said to the guys just before the finish that today starts the new challenge for the next Americas Cup. Were going to be stronger next time. Sept. 1 begins the Red Bull Youth Americas Cup , to be held through Sept. 4.
17 to 30. “The first Vuitton Cup was a big deal,” Trouble said. “We got a lot of coverage for that.” Despite the low number of challengers vying this year for the chance to go up against defender Oracle Team USA in September, Trouble is pleased with what is expected to be unprecedented coverage of the regatta by national networks led by NBC. He also said this year’s competition continues another long tradition of the Louis Vuitton Cup. “We have great memories of the big personalities involved in the Cup,” Trouble said. “All of these big personalities are a key element in the legend of the America’s Cup.” The big personalities this year include Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison , whose team won the Cup in 2010 in Valencia, Spain; Swedish tycoon Torbjorn Tornqvist of Artemis Racing; sailing legend Grant Dalton of Emirates Team New Zealand; and Patrizio Bertelli , the Italian entrepreneur and head of the fashion house Prada, whose team is Luna Rossa. Bertrand, another big personality – and the Australian who ended the longest winning streak in sports for America in the waters off Newport, R.I., in 1983 – recalled that the first Louis Vuitton series was an “intense battle (that) allowed us to raise our performance level. But above all, we needed this new trophy in order to win the honor of racing against the defender and carrying on the adventure.” Bertrand and his team aboard Australia II won 48 of 54 qualifying races, and beat the British syndicate Victory 83 by 4 races to 1 in the finals to go up against defender Liberty, skippered by legendary American sailor Dennis Conner . Bertrand recounted the battle against Conner: “The first team to win four heats would walk away with the oldest trophy in the world.

Emirates Team New Zealand wins Louis Vuitton Cup
It is now time for the Kiwis to march on to meet Oracle Team USA in the match. San Francisco lived up to its reputation and its pseudonym ‘Fog City’ for this race. It was down on the course for much of the race and hitherto unused techniques were pressed into service. Navigation was no longer an eyeball affair but one of calculation and the Kiwis were up to this extra challenge. The race began in 13 knots of south-westerly breeze with Luna Rossa entering the starting area on port tack. Helmsman Chris Draper went initially for the leeward side but Dean Barker, the New Zealand skipper appeared unperturbed and set up for a time-on-distance start on a line he could hardly discern in the thick mist. Barkeras move paid handsomely and ETNZ rounded the first mark at the end of a fast reach with a 16-second lead. As there has only been one passing move in the entire series, it could be said that the race was all over there, but the question of the position of the leeward gate added to the sailorsa problems As the two AC-72s went down the run at close to 30 knots (almost three times the wind speed) with Code 0 gennikers set, foiling gybes were out of the question, but the gybes performed by Emirates Team New Zealand were the better and the gap between them grew. As the two boats cleared the bottom gate to start the upwind leg, that gap was 1a31′.
