Italy's Luna Rossa breezed to a second straight victory over Sweden's Artemis Racing Wednesday in the semi-finals of the Louis Vuitton Cup.
Luna Rossa completed the 15.4-nautical-mile course on San Francisco Bay in a time of 54 minutes, 26 seconds, finishing just over two minutes ahead of Artemis.
"We are feeling better," said helmsman Chris Draper of Luna Rossa who seized a 2-0 lead in the series.
"We got a few things to work on. We sailed a good race but we can sail much, much better than that."
