Have to zoom out a lot on Virtual Eye to get both boats on screen at the same time...  8-)

Commentators: 'boats have been too far apart to learn anything' :D

 

Seems to have gotten soft at the bottom of the course, OR made some decent gains but slowed up as they approached the bottom.

Slow day for these guys. But I have been 21 knots in a tri and it's flying.

Kudos to big NBC for bringing in Draper and Outerridge rather than using the Kenny + english no-nothing team.  Nice to have people who know something about these boats on the call.    They still lack the good play by play guy but the NBC feed is really damned good.  Now if we have one good race or one good crash while a half million people are watching, that would be really good especially as these two days are the only ones on major TV here in the US.

Not on the NZ commentary on Sky. We've got the dropkick commentary team....

NZ heading downwind, about 400m for OR to get to top mark still...

ETNZ seems to be going a bit excessively wide on the laylines.

Not exactly like they lack lead distance to spare but not tight.

Fuck, I wish ETNZ had got to BDA earlier to practice in the conditions and get starting practice.

Got really soft at the top mark for both teams.

Oracle romping down with wind closed a lot of distance before ETNZ got back to speed.

Still over 400m though.

Shows you why that one race advantage OR had wasn't such a big deal...rather have lost that and not shown them much than win it and shown them something!!

Well as much as I'd like to think this is indicative it clearly isn't. 

Can't really read anything from it.

Complacency, or so far ahead they didn't push the boat?
