Races 4 and 5 Louis Vuitton Cup

I shot races four and five yesterday. While race five was the closest race yet – that’s the entire Cup so far – Italy was not very competitive after the first beat to windward. They seemed to lose distance with every tack. I think, barring a breakdown by New Zealand, the Louis Vuitton Cup is over. It’s on to the America’s Cup against the USA.

I put together a “movie” of Italy rounding the weather mark. You can see how the boat tips forward as they come around. The movie is my Facebook page.

The Gallery from yesterday is here.
