The race has been a true fight and helmsman Paolo Cian and the crew proved to be a very good team, hard to beat. Both America’s cuppers started exactly at the same time: they both as well crossed the starting line a litlle bit earlier then the starting gun.

“TIM Mascalzone Latino” had only do bear off to cros the line while the Swedish boat had to meke a 360° turn but this allowed her to get the starboard side and the gain the very small advantage until the finishing line.
