February 28, 2021 The start of the America's Cup final between Luna Rossa and Team New Zealand in Auckland has been postponed for at least four days and could postpone further, due to the lockdown imposed in the largest New Zealand city after the discovery of a new case of Covid -19.   

The first four regattas of the prestigious competition, which will be held at the best of 13 races, should have taken place on 6 and 7 March. But "they won't be held until Wednesday, March 10," announced Tina Symmans, president of America's Cup Events. Date that initially would have been dedicated to races 5 and 6.
