Congrats to Team New Zealand for sweeping Luna Rossa 5-0 for the Louis Vuitton Cup! They now get to challenge Alinghi for the Americas Cup later this month.

Luna Rossa sailed well; the races were much closer than the 5-0 score might indicate, but I think Luna Rossa simply wasn't aggressive enough. In the last race, they finally started attacking more, trying to take advantage of their faster acceleration after tacking in the light winds, but it wasn't enough.

Wahoo! Watch out, Alinghi!
