The Louis Vuitton Cup First Round Robin limped to a curious finish today in what proved to be the strongest sailing weather of the series so far. As the Hauraki Gulf delivered steady 20-knot breezes from the Northeast, only two of the eight scheduled matches were real races. In the others, at least one boat did not start or did not finish.

All racing is now complete, with the exception of AmericaOne’s matches against Young America and Young Australia 2000, both of which will be sailed tomorrow.
