Oh no, SWE with some gear problems early in the race (parts flying off, stuffing the boat in too much). They're still going, but JPN is about half a leg ahead now.

SWE retiring near the end of the race, will try to rebuild Humpty Dumpty for the next race. Winds in low 20s.

GBR and NZL in prestart now. Kiwis sailing with spare wing GBR leads at the start.

Burling made a horrible turn (tight and slow) at the first leeward gate, lost a bunch there. Rain squalls coming down the course.

The foils on BAR are much smaller than SWE.

NZL takes the lead on leg 5, after a horrible GBR tack. Then, NZL almost capsizes during their next tack. Amazing race to watch!

good lord these guys barely have control of these boats. If you watch the boat's motion through the water vs. the steering inputs, they aren't that closely linked. Wow. That has to be exhilarating and terrifying. High pucker factor.

Pretty much paraphrased what Burling said on the hot-mic.

Kenny and company speculating that the Kiwis are having a gear problem, while the boat mic pics up "Pressure coming, so we're happy!" as they're blasting down the course...

3-0, NZL

SWE way out of control, can't turn downwind, trying to get back onto the course.

Percy is losing his mind, can't shake the penalty. SWE actually was going well coming into the gate.

"I'm going to rip his head off!" Sums it up nicely...

Looks like RC blundered it again. Can't wait for their explanation.

Richard (chief umpire) explaining that they gave SWE a double penalty for going so far out of bounds, saving themselves at least one gybe. Then NZL slowed at the leeward gate, so SWE caught up too much, so they held them until they were back in position.

The presser ought to be interesting...

Mike

Yet SWE was sailing upwind on the downwind coarse near the boundary. BS!
