Big right shift and more pressure on that side. NZL went all the way left before tacking. Probably just minimizing maneuvers.

NZL tacking to cover, but SWE looking decent.

Breeze down to 5 knots, approaching first windward gate.

NZL dialing down, SWE protests, no penalty. SWE takes slight lead, will be on stbd for next tack. No one laying yet.

SWE found a big hole on the right.

NZL luffs SWE coming into the gate, SWE tacked away, but SWE gets a penalty. This is going to suck.

They shortened the course, SWE crawling ahead, now slipping back, but the time limit is likely to be a bigger problem.

not so fast. 6 marks averaging over 6 knots so wind is building.

Yes, NBCSN (online) has extended their broadcast. The boats are foiling around in just under 7 knots of breeze at the moment, cutoff time is 4:35 (I'd assume that's the latest start time).

Edit: no start after 4:35 Bermuda time (3:35 eastern), under 25 minutes to go.

Adjusting and shortening the course. Looks like they are going to try to get in a start sequence before time deadline.

Wow, NZL got a great start and held SWE to lead at Mark 1.

Big right shift halfway through, NZL extending.

So are we going to see bikes on Oracle? Or are they going to stick with the traditional grinding?

What other changes will we see from Oracle's last race?
