American Magic announced they would not compete in Round robins 3 and 4 following the damage sustained to their boat Patriot during the capsize in their round robin 2 race. In accordance with the rules, “ghost races” would be held. Those which were to have featured the teams would still take part on time and, given the American team failed to reach the starting gate, the race would then be awarded to the competitor by default.

Race 2 was set for January 22nd, but due to American Magic withdrawing from Round Robins 3 and 4, the race was moved to January 23.

Yesterday’s 2021 Prada Cup Round Robin Races gives INEOS Team UK a total of 6 points, Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team a total of 3 points, and NYYC American Magic still sits at 0 points on day 4 of the 2021 Prada Cup.

INEOS Team UK will go to the 2021 Prada Cup Finals. The other two teams will compete in the 2021 Prada Cup Semi-Finals to determine which one will move on to the Finals.

The winner of the 2021 Prada Challenger’s Trophy will determine who sails against Emirates Team New Zeland in the 36th America’s Cup.
