What a shame that this is the racing that makes it to network TV in the U.S.  The earlier racing was spectacular.  This is cringeworthy.

Maybe JS got such a rush from the comeback last time he thinks it would be fun to do it again??!!:huh:

Gonna need some conspiracy theories to make this interesting.

Lazzas money has obviously run out and they all need a Kiwi win to keep the show on the road!

Super close top mark.

ETNZ off phase let Oracle get to nearly overlapped on the mark.

ETNZ just clear.

Then Oracle flubbed their gybe, ETNZ nailed it & sailed away at 20+ vs under 10 :ph34r:

Fuckme that was too close.

That was such a massive gainer by oracle up to that top mark.  Etnz were so out of phase

Dominant performance by ETNZ. KR decides to focus on the mark 5 (3sec) difference... bastard.

GA is just saying how hard the cyclors were working to keep hydro up during that race.

OR was maneuvering a ton before the top mark, that may well have depleted their tank completely..

Yup went to gybe and just couldn't.

Upwind, the kiwis had to tack back to the right but it shifted and dropped velocity.  Tacking back would have been death.  So they had to go to layline.  Otusa were in breeze and could go to port boundary at the layline and do a foiling tack.  That's all it takes in these boats.  TNZ did a much better job defending through the windward gate, and executed the gybe too.

OR was through the jibe when they died, so no way to get the foil down??  Just seemed so odd

They ran out of hydro before the gybe, then couldn't get the foil down when they needed to

Any guesses what Jimmy thought he was protesting at mark 5?

ETNZ were clear ahead & first into the zone, went round as tight as reasonable.

Flukey doesn't account for a lot of that. ETNZ were faster both up and down wind in these conditions.

Burling playing with him now.! Jimmy will do a head gasket soon. Kiwis are faster, they sail better and Burling looks like he's in his element. If this gets out like the AC34 there's no coming back this time. If it wasn't for NZ getting out of phase and turning on the Pie Warmer that would have been embarrassing. Jimmy has used up his nine lives and Slingsby struggled. The presser will show Jimmy his usual self but today was an old fashioned spanking.

Definitely, it could be completely different in 15 tks. But OTUSA has no shot in this light air. Unless they fitted the wrong foils today.

After losing all that water on the wind shifts, that was excellent sailing to defend mark 5.
