On August 25th, the final of the America’s Cup Series Regatta Louis Vuitton Cup Challenge ended in San Francisco shrouded in thick fog. The New Zealand Chiefs defeated the Italian Luna Rosa in a 7-1 victory to win the championship and will challenge the defending champion, the United States Oracle Team, in the America’s Cup final.
The America’s Cup finals will begin on September 7. 17 outstanding teams will compete for the championship. Omega has always supported the New Zealand Chiefs and its captain Dean Barker and is proud of them. I wish them the best in the final!
