Race 2 start (NBC ran ads over the first half of the pre-start????!!!!)...

Very aggressive by both boats, NZL defended against a hook, came in too early, tacked away to gap off. SWE first to the line, NZL tried to roll, but SWE luffed them away, led all the way to the leeward gate.

Split at the bottom, SWE tacked to cover. This will be a critical leg.
