Louis Vuitton Predictions – Weds 18th April

Lets see if today we actually get some racing! After all the build-up, the first two days of the event being windless with all the matches cancelled has left me with a sense of anti-climax!

So, on to my predictions (in bold) for the day:

Flight 5

  • China Team – Team Shosholoza
  • Emirates Team New Zealand – Desafío Español 2007
  • Victory Challenge – United Internet Team Germany
  • Luna Rossa Challenge – BMW ORACLE Racing
  • +39 Challenge – Mascalzone Latino – Capitalia Team

Flight 6

  • China Team – Desafío Español 2007
  • Team Shosholoza – Emirates Team New Zealand
  • Areva Challenge – Luna Rossa Challenge
  • United Internet Team Germany – Mascalzone Latino – Capitalia Team
  • +39 Challenge – Victory Challenge

Today there are some interesting pairings, with my pick being Emirates vs Desafío, and Luna Rossa vs BMW Oracle. This is quite a start for the four teams I expect to make the semi-finals. I won’t be too unhappy to see the local boys get a win against the Kiwis, whilst for the Italians and Ellison’s team alike, a good start and a win against direct rivals gets their campaign off on the right foot and will settle a lot of nerves.
