But I dont know that we need a thread for day 1, day 2 , etc as I see posted. Gonna get redundant after a while. Day 8 thread? Day 9? How many days are we going to have to sift through? How about "here's all the shit about the races" in one place. Sign me up.

so at dawn tomorow ( Saturday) will i be seeing the day 1 racing on day 2 or is that the missing day one and i have to wait till Sunday dawn?
Sailing now starts at 2pm Saturday, Bermuda time. Convert that to whatever your local timezone is and that's when you should get up. If you're in NZ, it's Sunday morning.

Wow, Oracle's speed advantage on that first reach was more than I was expecting. On the downwind, too - they're clearly faster!

Wow. Oracle's got time to pull in for a quick lunch, and still beat Groupama over the line.

Anyone get that chat on Oracle around that last mark. Talked about an "eagle"?
Birdie is when you win with a leg to spare (i.e. the other team aren't on the final reach yet).

Eagle is when you win with two legs to spare (i.e. the other team are still headed upwind).

(I'm making this up - Ken was probably closer to the truth - but it would be funny if that's what he meant).
