Really poor tactics from AM in that race. They spent the whole race on the wrong side of the course...far more than Ineos made them spend there. Also missed a couple lay lines and had to throw in an extra tack multiple times.

Well done the Brits. Got hold of the right hand side and kept it. If the breeze stays up they should be favoured to beat LR.

upgrades could well take them to this and lighter air hasnt been seen, however, the ride height is a bit of a giveaway...lads

INEOS was lower so what does that mean? First cup race ive seen on the new platform.  Hard to tell the difference between the UW and DW legs with the apparent angles.... Whatever Magic got pasted!

She is short, fat, can't open her eyes, has a terrible accent, not that smart - and yet here she is. The Maori guy I think his name is "token"  (for those South Park fans). I have a lot of time for Peter Lester but maybe he shines because no one else on the show has any clue about sailing.

Watch another channel

 

 

Sure, the commentary is terrible compared to ken Read et al, but you had to go the misogynist/racist shitbag route eh?  You mum must be proud!

Looks like INEOS may need to make sail change.  I suspect the wind speed is dropping.

AM were tactically poor. I think they thought they could just boat speed the Brits.

Yeah- based on the speedo readings they didn't seem to be much different if at all.

Try establishing your VPN connection then opening a new private/incognito browser window and then head to YouTube. Make sure you're not logged in to YouTube.

Using Firefox, VPN on, new private window, not logged in to YT,... not finding anything live at YT?

As a Ineos supporter I hoped that they would be competitive and might win the race, but I didn’t expect Ineos to win over a minute.

Watching in USA on Chrome with TotalVPN, Air Parrot 3 to cast to Apple TV. Bit of a hack, but working well.

Wow, Ineos was fast. Seemed to have consistently higher boat speed.

AM we’re forced to play on the wrong side of the course, in the vain hope of wind shift which never came. Losing the start is what killed them

From a spectator perspective, if the races are going to be this short they have to get the second start off a lot quicker.

Just too much not sailing in this broadcast.

The problem is they don't have much to talk about in between races. They don't have anything prepared to fill the gap.

This is either sandbagging at a Guinness world record level or an UNBELIEVABLE revamp of the boat since the Christmas cup. Its the fucking Battle of Britain air war on the water!

Other than the start this is boat speed so far by Ineos IMO. Their numbers are good and the boat is smooth. The foils looking good too. So far Race 1 no fluke either

What a FUCKING BOAR after the Fat Lady sings after the 1st boat rounds the 1st mark 

 

Why not give them 10 min to get as far from the start as possible

Except for the Local Shots I would rather watch a commercial 

AND I LOVE(ed) The AMERICAS CUP !!!

Fucked up that mark rounding the Italians so I think their race might be over. ?

Two splashdowns in a row for LR rounding at the top mark.
 

Commentators suggesting cavitation off the foils reducing the lift. That’s a massive mistake if they’ve caused that with a foil design change over the last few weeks.

Don’t think they were sandbagging at all. Otherwise the team wouldn’t have been working so hard over the past weeks. They’ve shown they can sail in good breeze. Question remains March light wind.

This just doesn't apply to going around the wrong windward mark, though.

So good for the event. I think the 3 boats are now pretty similar in speed - at least in this wind strength.

In the last leg, there were sustained periods where INEOS had significantly better VMG (like 35 vs 29)...
