Sailing: OneWorld pay penalty
Thursday 12 December 2002
Prada gambled and took advantage of a tactical error by OneWorld, the US America's Cup challengers, to win the second race of their semi-finals series by 20 seconds yesterday.
OneWorld won the first race in the best-of-seven series, but the Italians now hold the advantage after an arbitration panel levied a one-point penalty on OneWorld for possessing boat design secrets from other teams. OneWorld will be penalised a point for every remaining stage after Prada and beaten syndicate Team Dennis Conner, who wanted OneWorld disqualified, protested.
In the other semi-final, Alinghi, of Switzerland, opened a 2-0 lead over Larry Ellison's Oracle BMW Racing with a 29-second victory in their second race.
