The 30th America’s Cup was contested between the holder, Team New Zealand, and the winner of the 2000 Louis Vuitton Cup, Prada Challenge, in Auckland, New Zealand. It was the first America’s Cup without an American challenger or defender. The Kiwi defender, with Russell Coutts (NZL) at the helm and Brad Butterworth (NZL) as tactician, beat the Italian challenger 5-0 which was helmed by Francesco de Angelis (ITA) alongside tactician Torben Grael (BRA).
