Louis Vuitton Trophy-Auckland

Only one match was sailed today here in Auckland before strong, gusty winds took hold of the harbor.

In the only match of the day, the French team Aleph go the better start and forced Team New Zealand out to the right side and into adverse current. The French had a comfortable lead at the first mark and the Kiwis tried a gybe set and tore their gennaker in the process. That was the end of it and the French went on to take the win. That was the Kiwi’s only loss and it proves that any team can beat any other team out here.

All other matches have been postponned until Tuesday, when the forecast is for more moderate winds. Hopefully, we will get the four scheduled matches in, plus the three that were missed today.
