I couldn't wait until Thursday to inform you that Emirates Team New Zealand wins the second part of the Louis Vuitton Trophy, which has took place in Auckland from 9 to 21 March. The other team having reached the finals is the Italian Mascalzone Latino, which lost 2 out of 3 final regattas. Just recall that ETNZ just won the first part of the Trophy, the Round Robin.

Next Louis Vuitton date will be in Sardinia, in the enchanting Maddalena Archipelago, starting from the end of May (22 May – 6 Juin 2010). The participating teams have to be confirmed; apart from the 8 Auckland teams, there will probably be Bmw Oracle and Luna Rossa.
In Sardinia, Louis Vuitton Trophy will be based in La Maddalena, in the old port of the ancient Navy. It belongs to La Maddalena Hotel Yacht Club, which has been completely restored and will open on May, 1st 2010.
