Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli won the Prada Cup Semi-Final against American Magic. On Saturday, the Italians started firmly in the driver's seat ahead of the races and needed only two more wins to claim a place in the Prada Cup Final against Ineos Team UK.
The Americans, who had already won their race against the time after their AC75 almost sunk less than two weeks before the race, had to find some magic to bring Patriot back to the performances she had before and had to win at least one match to keep their Semi-Final alive. But there was nothing American Magic could do. The Italians won the starts and were just faster, steadier and confident. Without any real pressure they didn’t make any mistakes and sailed to two easy wins.
