A great final in Sardinia

The Louis Vuitton Trophy La Maddalena finished today with a fantastic five race final between Emirates Team New Zealand. The Kiwis won the event by winning the final three races to overcome a 2-0 deficit. 

The Russian Synergy team, on the back of their charismatic skipper Karol Jablonski and talented tactician (and ex-BOR team member) Rod Dawson, pushed the experienced Kiwis to the limit. (Photos courtesy of Paul Todd / Bob Grieser / Louis Vuiton Trophy / Outsideimages)
