July 1 – America's Cup World Series Finals

July 2, 2012

Super Sunday brought exciting racing to the final day of Newport’s America’s Cup World Series.  The results both on and off the race course are in and the America’s Cup World Series was a huge success in Newport!  Can’t wait to have America’s Cup Racing back in Newport again, perhaps 2013?
Draper’s Luna Rossa Piranha won the final fleet race on Sunday.  The win gave them the Newport Fleet Racing title over ORACLE TEAM USA SPITHILL.

In the Match Racing finals it was an all American Final.  After a fantastic start, Coutts lead Spithill the entire race and, surprisingly, won the Newport Match Racing Championship.  “It’s been quite a while since I’ve won anything,” Coutts joked with his crew as he crossed the finish line.
