America’s Cup competition piques interest of landlubber
Living my whole life in land-locked Kansas, right smack in the middle of the United States, it might be hard to believe I take notice of the America’s Cup competition. For those who might not know, the America’s Cup is a sailing competition and is known for the oldest trophy in international sports.
The 2013 America’s Cup race is being hosted by the Golden Gate Yacht Club in San Francisco Bay. Challenger vessels have been competing since July 7 in the Louis Vuitton Cup Challenger Series. Waiting on the winner of that series of races is the Oracle of the United States.
Last Saturday, Italy’s Luna Rossa sailed into the final of the America’s Cup challenger series, completing a 4-0 sweep over the Swedish syndicate Artemis. With the win, Luna Rossa advanced to the final of the Louis Vuitton Cup against Emirates Team New Zealand. The best-of-13 series starts this Saturday.
