Second race, USA lost start, then pasted NZ on upwind leg, and put on a 57 sec WIN.

Un flippin believable.

Huge thanks to Dennis Key for talking to me with the blow by blow on my long drive to and from a solar array out in the Cali desert today. Pretty sure the folks in cars near me thought I was epileptic...

Massive credit to the American Team for an unbelievable comeback. For this series to be tied now is just beyond unexpected. I'm still pulling for the Kiwis to find their mojo and pull back from the brink of ignominy, but you simply have to marvel at the composure and professionalism of Jimmy Spithill... an Americas Cup skipper for the ages.

Now is a pretty good time to crank up the volume and have a review of this older Oracle video:

anyone have a lead on the wind forecast for tomorrow? GJ thought the forcast was for 30 on the telecast and they might be forced to delay. It is hard to keep rearranging the schedule! just have to do it tho...This is spectacular competition.

windfider is saying 13knts at 1pm and 17knots at 5pm. Looks like a good day for racing to me. Intellicast is saying much of the same.

You think any of these sailors are sleeping tonight? I don't.

What is unique about this competition unlike any other pro sport is that it is Unrelenting. It is day after day after day... the breaks are unexpected and actually a let down not a chance to recharge your battery or emotions. The world series has scheduled travel dates... the foot ball play offs give you two weeks before the superbowl.. How Oracle is maintaining their edge is extraordinary.... How New Zealand is holding it together or cracking is more normal.

Spitall has been called a bull dog... I am beginning to understand where that comes from.

Once again... Thank you Larry Ellison.... I love that you spent a billion on the sport just for the hell of it and it has been spectacular.

We're sailors, not some pussy butt wife beating baseball players, or football player rapists, or child molesting basketball players. You'd need a break too if you had all those extra curricular activities.
