AC34, Louis Vuitton Cup Semifinal: Artemis vs Luna Rossa Match #3 Replay

Best race overall for Artemis with only 1 min behind and foiling gybes but Luna Rossa had their own best too. Not a single error for the Italians that even won the start for the first time on Draper's aggressive move.

Hurts the soul how close Artemis crew was to get things sorted out on their hybrid last minute creation after all they've been through.
If AR owner Torbjörn Törnqvist, wants to keep campaigning for the future Americas Cup, he'd better take good care of the entire remaining Artemis Team, what they have achieved and in this tremendous special context is beyond belief.

Meanwhile Oracle withdraws from past AC45s events and the Kiwis are not happy at all. This is not good news for OR, more after the intention of forcing new rules by Regatta Director.


Today at 1:15pm Race 4 of this LV Semi Final. Race 3 Highlights here, replay below.
More wind and a 'Miracle' will get Artemis a new chance to continue their incredible improvement.

Never say Never....
