America's Cup 2007
Valencia, Spain

Racing today could determine the winner of the Louis Vuitton Act 4 as the top two teams, Alinghi (SUI) and Emirates Team New Zealand, face each other in the last match of the first flight.
The race between the two previous America's Cup winners will be on the Juliet (South) race course. Alinghi designer Manolo Ruiz DE ELVIRA commented, "It will be a difficult match. They proved to be very strong in October, they're always good sailors, it's kind of a silent team doing the right job and they're always dangerous."

So far both teams have won all of their matches, although they both have one match each to race against the second place teams, BMW ORACLE Racing (USA) and Luna Rossa Challenge (ITA).
