Emirates Team NZ and Luna Rossa line up on the San Francisco Bay

The Americas Cup live coverage continues at Louis Vuitton Cup finals between Emirates Team New Zealand vs Luna Rossa Challenge that kickoff on Saturday at San Francisco Marina Bay. The race is live COZI TV with delayed telecast on NBC Sports Network.

Emirates Team of New Zealand beat Luna Rossa Challenge of Italy after their wing-sail catamaran broke down. Emirates team now leads 1-0 in Louis Vuitton Cup best of 13 series. The winner will face defending champion Oracle Team USA in the 34th America's Cup next month.

Mercury News reported that, “Just moments before the start Saturday afternoon, Luna Rossa broke down. The team grabbed saws and dremels to repair the starboard daggerboard and actually had a good start against Emirates Team New Zealand, but when they were just eight seconds behind at the first mark, the daggerboard failed again and the 72-foot catamaran came to nearly a dead stop.”

Italy's Luna Rossa Challenge defeated Sweden's Artemis Racing in the semifinals of making their 2013 America's Cup racing debut in San Francisco. Meanwhile Emirates Team New Zealand is the favorite to win this race. The Kiwis recorded 5-0 victories against the Italians in the round-robins, including a race Luna Rossa boycotted over a rules spat.

Race 2 and 3 are scheduled on Sunday at 1:10 pm and 2:10 pm in Pacific Time. Check this page for 2013 Louis Vuitton Cup Finals live results, (Best-of-13 series)
