I don't know how many non New Zealanders are following the Pre America's cup challenger series in Valencia, but I hope you guys are cheering and praying for Emirates Team NZ to win . At the moment the Challenger series final is under way.
Emirates Team New Zealand has won the first race (last night my time) against Luna Rossa (previously Called Prada) and leads the (Challenger Series) Louis Vuitton Cup Final 1-0 . The winner ith the Team that wins 5 races first (or the best of 9 races). Last night was exciting with Team NZ despite a great start and coasting mostly finally faced a challemge and pulled off an exciting 8 second win.
Any others following it ?
As a Sri Lankan in NZ , I find it very exciting.
The winner then races Alinghi (the defender and holder) for the America's Cup.
