Here's a question.... Why was Philippe Presti wearing a Zhik trap harness?

BTW, it's awesome that we've graduated to full NBC (not just the SN channel).

NZ very fast in light air, only Achilles heel appears to be not enough hydraulic reserve to do consecutive jibes. Spithill needs to win the start. Damon, I'm watching on NBC, not NBCSN.

NZL going much better than USA in the light air, much better first gybe and angle into the gate. USA going to split at the gate, but are WAY out of this early.

USA slight gain out of the gate, but NZL tacking onto loose cover. Very smart.

Either Oracle is sandbagging, experimenting with set up, or something, but they are much slower on all points of sail.

Wow, USA clawed back on leg 5 upwind!!!

USA protests at the windward gate, no penalty.

USA just totally pooched the gybe. I can't take much more of this!!!

They lost nearly 300 meters on the blown gybe at the start of the final run. Pretty much game over.
