Video of Today’s America’s Cup Action: Luna Rossa vs. Emirates Team New Zealand

It’s time for today’s Louis Vuitton Cup action, and lucky us, this one was a race that actually had two boats facing off — Italy’s Luna Rossa Challenge vs. Emirates Team New Zealand. We don’t want to spoil this for the 12 regular readers who have been following this closely (ha ha! Just kidding, America’s Cup!) … so if you want to know the (rather interesting result) without watching the race, click here for a New Zealand Herald account. (They are all over this in New Zealand.)

The winner of the Louis Vuitton Cup will face off against Oracle Team USA in the America’s Cup finals.

Here are all race results to date. And here’s some time-lapse video of the rebirth of Artemis Racing. Their original boat was destroyed in a capsizing in May, during which Olympic medalist Andrew “Bart” Simpson was killed. Now their new craft is at least in the water.
