TeamOrigin bow out of Louis Vuitton

TeamOrigin did not get to race on Thursady in the final round robin and quarter final which confirmed the four semi-finalists for the Louis Vuitton Trophy La Maddalena. They are the French/German boat All4One, Sweden"s Artemis, Emirates Team New Zealand and SYNERGY Russian Sailing Team.



Match races over the next three days in Version 5 America’s Cup boats off the Sardinian island of La Maddalena will determine the outcome of the two-week series. Tomorrow, Artemis will meet Team New Zealand and All4One will race SYNERGY.

One quarter-final was decided today. Fifth-placed SYNERGY defeated fourth-placed Mascalzone Latino two races to one. The only races sailed in the shifty northwest breeze were the last two of the round robin and those of the single quarter-final.

The remaining three boats went through to the semi-finals based on their performances in the round robin. All4One, in fourth place on Tuesday, won the round robin today, after defeating Sweden’s Artemis which had led on points throughout the week. The Swedish boat finished the round second. Emirates Team New Zealand finished the round third after defeating Mascalzone Latino.

TeamOrigin Trimmer Mike Mottl was given the all clear to head back to his hotel. He has suffered muscular damage and will not be sailing any further races during this regatta to allow him the time to make a full recovery.
