Yeah...crazy. They had a speed advantage in this breeze up and downwind yesterday and there was no need for drastic risks while leading. That will be second guessed for a while.

Oracle doesnt have the upwind speed. They need to stay on top of them or they will walk away. Of course they might walk away anyway...

I'm shocked considering Oracle showed what looked like better speed in race 4....

I'm guessing there were issues with Oracle. It's being heard on-board communications.

Hauling.....

Based on the data on live line, looked like ETNZ was much quicker upwind - foiling in locations (27+knots).

Which pool? I know them all. And yes, you'll get 4G in most places. The town is old, but they've all got I-phones and FB to keep up with their grandkids...

150 meters is only about 7 boatlengths... doesn't sound like too much at those speeds, but I agree: What were they thinking?

I think they just don't feel like they set the boat up for that level of wind. Probably their butt is just too raw...

I can stream it on my phone, but can't watch it on the computer plugged into my tv. F-ing lame
