  7. America’s Cup: Luna Rossa wins battle...

(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 18 – Luna Rossa has won its battle to have
racing in the Prada Cup final against INEOS TEAM UK resume this
weekend.
    The competition, the winner of which gets to take on Team New
Zealand in the 36th America’s Cup, was suspended this week after
Auckland went into a COVID level 3 lockdown for 72 hours.
    Organizers and the British team had been in favour of postponing
racing further, even though the area has dropped down to level
2.
    They said the aim of the postponement would have been to give
time for the alert to drop to level 3, which would have enabled
spectators to see it live.
    The Italian team, on the other hand, wanted to get back in the
water as soon as possible after taking a 4-0 lead in the
first-to-seven series.
    As result the organizers have backed down and the action will
resume on Saturday. (ANSA).
