yesterday against Young America in the America's Cup.

Abracadabra loses

Young America defeated Hawaii's Abracadabra 2000 by 1 minute, 24 seconds in yesterday's America's Cup race, as Abracadabra 2000 remained in a tie for fourth in overall standings.

Italy's Prada scored a dramatic victory over San Francisco's AmericaOne, winning the race by 17 seconds.

Also, the Spanish Challenge defeated Young Australia by 37 seconds, America True defeated Stars and Stripes by 41 seconds and Nippon defeated Le Defi Francais by 1 minute, 53 seconds.

The number of races yesterday was half that of previous days because of a local racing regatta on waters near the two challenger courses.
