Americascup: Kiwis are perfect, the Spanish move up, Shosholoza sneaks in

Emirates Team New Zealand knocked off Alinghi and BMW ORACLE Racing to run a perfect record in the round robin portion of Louis Vuitton Act 12. This earns the Kiwis the right to choose their opponent for the next stage of the competition.

To complete its perfect run, Emirates Team New Zealand had to navigate its way through treacherous conditions on a difficult day of shifting winds and variable pressure on the waters off Valencia. The team made bold decisions in both races and were rewarded with handy leads.
