I do have to say that in this case the time limit is frustrating. I know they all agreed to it before the racing started and on certain levels it is probably logical, BUT if part of the America's Cup is to see who is the better boat/sailors across differing conditions... the time limit doesn't seem to allow for a competition on a truely light wind day. I think that ETNZ just showed that they could sail better in the very light wind condition, but didn't get the reward of a win for their efforts. I don't care who you are cheering for... it seems a little unfortunate. OR is ceraintly getting a little bit of luck on this one.

ok. I haven't seen anyone else ask this yet... and maybe I'm just ignorant of some fact that makes this question stupid.... but why did Oracle allow TNZ to round mark 1 to the inside. It seemed to me like Oracle was the leeward boat and that there was not an overlap at the time Oracle or TNZ entered the zone ... so, no requirement to allow room... why not force them up and prevent them from rounding to the inside?


Wondered the same

Ehen ETNZ got to the zone OR were 70m past the mark

So, you are saying that OR was too far away to effectively push ETNZ? I guess the camera angle really messes with the depth on screen. From my view, it looked like they should have had the room to push them around ... but I can see where that might not have been possible if the boats weren't actually close enough.

Check VE replay. plains it all

Ok, - what is VE replay?
