Synergy lose to Team New Zealand in Dubai
Synergy turned out to be no match for Team New Zealand in the second round-robin stage.
The Kiwis won comfortably by one minute and 18 seconds.
That lop-sided race was a far cry from the closely-fought final of the previous stage in Italy where New Zealand just edged Russia by a 3-2 scoreline.
Also making the cut in Dubai were leaders BMW Oracle, Italian entry Mascalzone Latino and the French/German boat All For One.
The semi-finals are due to begin on Friday.
