AmericaOne Robbed of Victory

A foul at the finish line, robbed AmericaOne of a second victory against Prada, in the fourth race of the Louie Vuitton finals on Sunday.

AmericaOne had led for most of the race, but Prada Skipper Francesco de Angelis recovered his team from the 41 second deficit, to run down the AmericaOne boat in the final leg of the race, forcing them to concede a penalty.

Racing for the Cup stops today as the boats take a break for the Auckland anniversary regatta.

Prada needs to win just two more races to clinch the Cup and become the official challenger to Team New Zealand in the America's Cup finals.
