Looking back at a start between America’s Cup challengers Luna Rossa and BMW Oracle during the Semifinals of the 2007 Louis Vuitton Cup in Valencia, Spain. At the helm of the Italian team then, as is now in 2021, is Jimmy Spithill who inflicts a double penalty on rival Chris Dickson of the USA entry.
The 2021 PRADA Cup is a series of four round robins (Jan. 15-17 and Jan. 22-24), with the winner of the series qualifying for the PRADA Cup Final and the remaining two Challengers going into a Semi-Final Series (Jan. 29-Feb. 2) for the right to join the Round Robin winner in the Final (Feb. 13–22). The winner of the Final earns entry to face the Defender, Emirates Team New Zealand, in the 36th America’s Cup Match beginning March 6.
