Emirates Team New Zealand win the Prada America’s Cup World Series trophy with two race wins on the final day in Auckland.
The final race of the 12 race series decided the trophy winner, with ETNZ winning the last race by 0:16 seconds from Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli to take victory by one pont from American Magic.
Luna Rossa finished in third place, with Ben Ainslie’s Ineos Team UK finishing fourth and without a race win.
Races will resume Sunday 20 December at 15:00 (NZ) weather permitting for the PRADA Christmas Race.
The first race will see Emirates Team New Zealand facing INEOS TEAM UK, followed by a match between Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli vs New York Yacht Club American Magic.
After the two first head to head match ups, the winners of each will progress to the final, the losers to a playoff match which will help decide the final rankings.
