Red Moon won Prada Cup Final He knocked down Ineos UK in the final 7-1. From March 6, the Emirates defender will face New Zealand to conquerAmerica’s CupThe oldest sports cup in the world. So far the hosts have limited themselves to observing opponents and focusing on developing the boat and training.
So what can you expect from Te Rehutai? We won’t know until the first race. The hope is primarily that the final will be closely fought in 2000, when Luna Rossa was defeated 5-0. The feeling is that the Italian fleet can gamble, but on the condition that there is not much difference in performance between the two boats..
Looks like OA Sport The Maori boat is too extremeDesigned to stand out especially in moderately strong winds, from 14 knots onwards. There could be quite a few issues with the light breeze, which Luna Rossa loved instead. Te Rihotai is definitely a formidable boat downwindAnd As Max Serena admitted. Furthermore, New Zealanders continue to invest heavily in development: T-shaped chips. (which is rumored that Luna Rossa could also adopt her in light of the final), It passes through the so-called “Batman” sails designed for strong windsAnd Reach the new rudder.
The goal of New Zealanders is not to win but to dominate. Despite having a budget much lower than the Ineos and largely equal to that of the Luna Rossa (we’re talking about 60 million for the kiwi and 65 for the Italians), they distinguish themselves for futuristic and ambitious solutions aimed at eliminating any ambitions of competitors. The local press reveals excessive optimismHe even wrote that astute witnesses had seen unprecedented touch speeds of Te Rehutai in the Hauraki Gulf…In fact, Maori seem quite sure of their means, to the point that negotiations are already underway to organize the next stage America’s Cup in the Middle East, with Ineos Team UK as Challenger of Record.
In the race we saw Emirates Team New Zealand in World Championship held in December. He made a great impression, without control. He had five wins and lost the race to American Magic, who then stopped his way in the semi-final against Luna Rossa. against the Prada Pirelli team He won twice, but in one of two races The Italian team was clearly ahead, before being betrayed by turning winds. We should not forget that the tricolor boat and the New Zealand boat look very different than it did two months ago, so these results should be taken with caution.
