The first week of the Louis Vuitton Cup has seen a lot of waiting, some interesting results, and already a big upset with Mascalzone Latino beating Emirates Team New Zealand in the first flight back on Friday.
The table is looking more or less as I would have expected, though with the leaders in a diferent order. With only three flights raced for all but three teams, only Ellison’s BMW Oracle Racing and the Italians Mascalzone Latino and Luna Rossa are unbeaten.
I think United Internet Team Germany will be diappointed with how their campaign has started and maybe have under-achieved during the first week. On the other hand, Mascalzone Latino and Victory Challenge will both be very happy to have got wins in all their races so far.
Â Predictions Roundup
My predictions for Flights 1 & 2 weren’t too good, I only managed to pick 6 out of 10, with flight one particularly bad, I only got 2 correct!
Flight 3, like flight 2 was better, getting 4 of the 5 correct.
So, so far I’m at 66% (10/15). I’m happy with that for now!
