The hospitality industries expected to suffer because people, won't be able to see the America's Cup from the shore.
Luna Rossa has convinced the Arbitration Panel to cancel the inner harbour stadium courses.
They'd have provided spectacular views for the public, from both Devonport and Takapuna.
Auckland University associate professor Mike Lee told Kate Hawkesby taxpayers have a right to feel cheated, because they're paying for the infrastructure for the event, but in the end it is a television spectacle.
“We should feel a little bit cheated because... we pay for the infrastructure… we can all imagine summer time, level 1… imagine tens of thousands of people at the water front looking at these magnificent boats.”
