Joey Newton says no, just draining the cockpits.

Sure looks like a crack in the hull. Either that or BAR has a shit drainage system that only dribbles water out.

BAR hull has split! And that’s when the tide turned for the Brits…by 39s. Now let’s watch how DB handles Race 9.

Another mimosa, please

Speculation is that's the paint line from last night's repair job, right above the cockpit scuppers (according to Kenny and Joey).

Had some during the first race. Think they weren't prepared for it to be a good one.

The secret to today's racing is to play the wind to your advantage. Team NZ seems to know how to do it.

The American guy just said the boats have more of a nose-down attitude than in the past, something I noticed. Why is that? Is it faster? Or a quirk of the rules? Surely a nose-down attitude has more parasite drag having the ass way up in the air?

After race 1 today, i think these top teams are just relieved to get the points on the board at this stage!

those 2 points that BAR got from the 45 series are proving to be priceless, oracle's 1 point valuable too.

 

No clear favorite

Coming from behind to beat japs by 33s. How does that compare to a similar result for orifice over bar?

Hard to compare. Japan would've won it if they could tack for shit. NZ made up huge ground by staying on their foils, then took it with a well called wind shift. Everyone's showing good speed.

“Oracle most impressive so far, their ability to manufacture passes once they pass, they can stretch away. But Team New Zealand's boat handling is exquisite. But Oracle are making the least mistakes." —Prof. Mark Orams, a few minutes ago

I hope ETNZ were racing well within themselves - most of the upwind legs, they were consistently 3-4 knots slower than OR-JPN.

I think 3-4 knots is a huge exaggeration. I'm not 100% sure they were slower at all.

OR-Xerox grinders might be feeling the pinch - with still another race to go. Artemis might have held back their first-choice grinders for this match.
