Amazing they didn't go over or damage the fairings.

SWE is fast and their VMG is better. Oracle and JPN are two boat practice racing.

After watching the 2000 AC race that Jake posted and watching the last race, who would want to go back to monos.

What a nail-biter! SWE will literally live to see another day. Can't wait to hear what went wrong after that tack. Amazed they didn't pick up a penalty, looked like they were out of control and came down hard on NZL twice.

Burling needs to learn how to start. Also, his forward cyclist needs to get off the boat, he looked awful.

Well, they did it again at the start of Race 5, SWE is just too good for Burling.

But, SWE appears to be back up to their old tricks with bad tactics, and NZL just sailed away.

SWE appears to be having trouble getting their stbd board to come up quickly?

....And as I type that, SWE retires from Race 5, all the king's horsemen are trying to salvage this for Race 6.

In the interview with BT Sports, Iain Percy just stated that the button to control foil rake was stuck on "max positive rake".

Unfortunately schitty that NBCSN doesn't cover any of these little details. . . .

Race 7, more of the same. SWE wins the race to mark 1, and NZL keep it close, until they eventually pass. It got exciting at the last gate before the finish as NZL got off their foils during a horrible gybe, and SWE nearly beat them to the finish.

But, it's 4-2, NZL going into tomorrow. SWE need to win 3 straight.

NBC totally sucks. We're forced to listen to old-school commentators opining about their Glory days when 0.1 knot of boatspeed mattered. I have tons of respect for Kenny and Cayard, but they're being put into a position where they can only lose.

How about never comparing races in these boats to anything prior, ever again? That would be a good start.

What specifically puts you off about him?

Dave Reed's final statement/question was extremely awkward: "It's pretty well known that everybody that's exited so far has gone out to support the defender in any way they can to prevent a Kiwi eventual victory..." WTF?????

Forecast is very soft (5 knots or less), stand by for AP?

Nope, 10-11 knots at the start. NZL much better in the pre-start, but SWE looked to pounce. However, SWE OCS, following NZL into Mark 1.

Not good...

Not that it matters, but the RC radioed "Clear start" after the start, then called the penalty.

Wow, NZL going right upwind, way ahead, SWE split at the first leeward gate.
