The final four

The Louis Vuitton Cup is down to just four teams. The best four to emerge from the Round Robin portion of the event are now paired up and ready to do battle again, after a very short, four day rest.

The Louis Vuitton Cup is almost Darwinian in nature. Teams that adapt and improve survive to race another days. Those who don’t are eliminated. In this way, only the strongest survive, continually pushed by the others to improve.
