America’s Cup on hold

The America’s Cup final between Team New Zealand and Italy’s Luna Rossa on Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour was pushed back yesterday as a coronavirus outbreak plunged the city back into lockdown. The first four races in the best-of-13 showdown were scheduled for next weekend but “will not occur before at least Wednesday, March 10,” America’s Cup Events chair Tina Symmans said. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern ordered a 7-day, level-3, lockdown in Auckland from 6am yesterday after a 21-year-old man visited a gym and other public areas after testing positive for the UK strain of the virus. It is the 13th case of COVID-19 since the latest cluster emerged two weeks ago putting Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, into a three-day lockdown.
