Francesco Bruni takes Ainslie 3-2 to Win Argo Group Gold Cup - Taylor Canfield (ISV) USone defeated Adam Minoprio (NZL) Team Alpari FX in the petite finals of the Argo Group Gold Cup
It was a battle of America’s Cup tacticians Sunday in Bermuda. In one of the most exciting finals in Argo Group Gold Cup history, Francesco Bruni (ITA) Luna Rossa put a stop to the comeback kid, Sir Ben Ainslie (GBR) BART/Argo Group. Bruni won the first two races and then Ainslie took two and looked like he was going to add a Gold Cup comeback to his America’s Cup record.

Bruini would have nothing of that and sailed flawlessly in the final race to win the King Edward VII Gold Cup and US$50,000 of the $100,000 prize purse.
