    As a kiwi I’m wishing the Italians no bad luck. Which means if ETNZ wins today’s races it’s not due an equipment failure on LR.

    In the end of the day both teams attended the news conference. Everything else is arguing over what might of been.

    The tense relationship is sad and not necessary. Yet it’s seems to be the nature of the AC and its intense competition that brings out the worse of everybody.  Let’s hope for clean but intense battle on the water and civility on land

    I love Italy been there about 8 times now. Sadly not vMilan or Florence, but I’ll love to visit. I’m sure if the Italians won the America’s cup they would take the cup into their heart and support a great defence. If we have to lose the cup it will be good to know it’s going somewhere we’re it’s...

    I would like to see Milan because this city plays an important role in the renaissance. People don’t give Northern Italy the credit it’s due. Without the Renaissance I’d be still swilling in pig shit

    Every second car has a dent, Naples driving was a shock to this kiwi.

    I wonder if our Italian friends are feeling optimistic today. It’s a nice light breeze ie Prada weather. You have a nice new set of foils and the dual helm team seems to be working.  I’m half a Pom so I have to support Ineos  but I can’t help feeling a little nervous when I look out the window...

    I’m not sure if the Italians are bad guys but they have hired some professional trouble makers.

    LR now have to face Ineos a boat that beat them when damaged. The. Italians say there 10% faster and they will need to be,  because Ineos will also be faster.

    Well done handbags your boat was clearly faster today and sailed well. Enjoy your victory

    The one thing about LR is they don’t always spend big. In the 2013 campaign he bought the design and built one boat. For the amount of worth he has you could say it was a minimal effort. Maybe LR is also a marketing concept to Patrizio Bertelli.
