Must watch match race in the AC'21

After the US boat, Patriot, lost her magic to become “American Tragic” in last week-end final race, a shortened program was scheduled to finish the Round Robin, as the American team has forfeited to proceed with repairs.
So only the UK and Italian boats sailed out today, but what a race they sailed!
You can relive the whole match on the Amerca’s Cup official website here >>Prada Cup Day 4
AND WHAT A MATCH THAT WAS!!!
This is a must-watch for all match racers aficionados. Really.
From the pre-start to the last cross in the final leg, this was an intense fight, sailed at an average speed of 35+ knots. Shifty winds created the perfect set-up for multiple changes of lead as both teams made the most of every tactical opportunities to come back!
I won’t spoil the results, but it came down to a protest call being denied by the jury (rightly so, i think).
That’s how close the whole race was. Enjoy!
