Louis Vuitton Challenger Final Day 3

New Zealand beat Sweden by 56 seconds and has easily won the Louis Vuitton challenger series 5 to 2 to become the official challenger.

Our history in the America’s Cup is:

  • 1987 – KZ-7 lost in the challenger final
  • 1988 – KZ-1 is the challenger
  • 1992 – NZ did not compete
  • 1995 – NZL-32 is the challenger and wins
  • 2000 – NZL-60 is the defender and wins
  • 2003 – NZL-82 is the defender and loses
  • 2007 – NZL-92 is the challenger and loses
  • 2010 – NZ did not compete
  • 2013 – Emirates Team NZ is the challenger and loses
  • 2017 – Emirates Team NZ is the challenger

We now start the America’s Cup at -1 to Oracle at 0 and the first one to seven wins so we have to bear Oracle eight times to win – a hard call.
