Synergy lose to Team New Zealand in Dubai

Russian sailing team Synergy have failed to reach the semi-finals of the Louis Vuitton Trophy currently underway 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.
