America’s Cup teams hit back at unhappy Luna Rossa, Team NZ

HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) — The America’s Cup teams which voted this week to downsize the catamarans for the 2017 regatta have hit back at Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa Challenge, suggesting hypocrisy.

In a joint statement from defending champion Oracle Team USA and challengers Artemis Racing (Sweden), Ben Ainslie Racing (Britain), and Team France on Friday, they expressed disappointment at Team New Zealand’s reaction to rule changes, some of which were “insisted upon by Luna Rossa.”
