Whew! SWE managed to make the gate without a close cross or another gybe. We're tied 1-1!!!

Race 3 pre-start underway. Very aggressive early.

Early coming back, NZL to leeward, looking like a reversal of Race 2, but SWE with better speed than NZL, and roll over the top to lead into Mark 1!

SWE led to the leeward gate, NZL gybed away to go for a split. SWE didn't tack to cover.

Coming back together, SWE in the lead on STBD, but not by enough to tack and cover, so they're both heading for the boundaries. NZL will be on stbd for the next cross. Oh boy...

SWE crosses on port! SWE will now enjoy a slight righty going to the windward gate.

Wow, virtual tie at the weather gate. SWE crossed and went to the left mark, NZL split, and will have the stbd advantage on the next leeward cross, but SWE got into better pressure and extend.

SWE looking VERY sloppy coming into the leeward gate, NZL slowed a bit, virtually tied now. Split at the leeward gate, NZL going right and will have stbd advantage next. SWE looking OK (barely), and have cleanly crossed. Wow...

SWE on stbd for this cross, ahead enough to not bother hunting, NZL will be on stbd next. 700 meters to the weather gate, virtually tied again. I don't like this for SWE.

2-1 NZL.

Nathan slid right past his cock-pit when he ran across during the tack. Unbelievable.

Burling thinks he would have won that race regardless, I'm not so sure. I think SWE had position to come into the weather gate on port, but inside like the other day against JPN. Sure would have been fun to watch.

Just for fun, I went back and watched some of the 2000 America's Cup racing. Talk about watching paint dry. :-)

Got to say that the BT Sports coverage has been excellent. They have had a lot of coverage and interviews during non racing scheduled time, plus you get the pre-starts and no interruptions during the race.

Todd Harris- much better than 4 years ago. He's palpable.

not much room at the bottom of the course before they run out of water!
