Remember when I said Team USA couldn’t pull this one out of Davey Jones’ Locker? Well, I’d like to take that back, OK? In fact, I really doubt after today that New Zealand can win. New Zealand finally got a good start in the second race and were leading at mark 3. After that, Oracle turned on the afterburner and the race was over, for all intents and purposes.
It’s winner take all tomorrow and Oracle is out-sailing New Zealand not to mention they have better boat speed. I put up some pictures from yesterday – Race 16. Didn’t take any today. I’m a New Zealand fan but you just have to admire how much Oracle improved … almost over night. And it’s been a great America’s Cup. Longest ever and, in spite of today, it’s been pretty close. To bad there is no second place.
