On 17 March 2021, Emirates Team New Zealand entered into the history books their successful defence of the prestigious America’s Cup, winning it for a fourth time. On the seventh day of the 36th America’s Cup, the team took out the Auld Mug with a spectacular performance that saw them pull out over 500m ahead of Luna Rossa Prada Perelli. By the final gate, the Kiwis took the right-hand mark 49 seconds ahead of the Italians as they headed off on the last leg of what would become the exhilarating final race.
