Three action–packed races in Bermuda for Land Rover BAR

Super Sunday was just that at the final event of the 2015 Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series in Bermuda. A short course, great breeze and tight racing saw three different race winners, a massive collision between Artemis and a jury boat and too many overtaking moves to count.

The final results saw Land Rover BAR conclude the season with a third overall. They finished just three points behind America’s Cup holder Oracle Team USA, with Emirates Team New Zealand the season winners. Gear failure and a tactical misjudgement in race two turned a possible 3, 2, 1 into a 3, 6, 2.

The team came back strongly in the final race, and might well have closed out the season with a podium finish except issues with the daggerboards allowed Emirates Team New Zealand to take the final win of the day. A second place for the British team meant they finished third overall for 2015.

Skipper and Team Principal, Ben Ainslie: “It was a tough one for the team, we had a good first race and a terrible second race. An issue with the control system for the starboard daggerboard put us in a tough spot. But the boys came back well with a second in the final race, unfortunately that wasn’t enough to get us back on the podium for the weekend. It’s been great to race in the America’s Cup venue, and today was a fantastic breeze – short racing, but pretty intense and hopefully it was a great spectacle.”

The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series continues in February 2016.

The first event of 2016 is still to be confirmed.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series Bermuda Results:
