Louis Vuitton Cup Race 7 - Luna Rossa on the brink

Emirates Team NZ flies towards the finish - America's Cup
To move on to challenge Oracle for the America's Cup, Luna Rossa must win six races in a row, and Emirates Team NZ need just one more win. A tall order. Today's races could have been the end of the road for Luna Rossa, if Race 8 had not been postponed until tomorrow due to high winds, and ETNZ had won both races.

To cover that possibility, Sail-World photographer Chuck Lantz was stationed on the LVC VIP lounge race-deck, shooting photos of the finish and the crowds of spectators lining the pier in the AC Village.
