    Luna Rossa skipper Max Sirena has essentially accused rival America's Cup challengers INEOS Team UK and American Magic of whinging to the Government over chasing visas for their team members

    Luna Rossa skipper Max Sirena has essentially accused rival America's Cup challengers INEOS Team UK and American Magic of whinging to the Government over chasing visas for their team members


    The New Zealand borders remain closed to foreign passport holders due to Covid-19, although some exemptions have been made.

    American Magic and INEOS have expressed their frustrations publicly about a lack of progress as they seek to shift their operations to Auckland.

    But Sirena says it's a waste of time to put pressure on the Government.
