I don't know anything about this, but would it be best to just kill this cup, give it to NZ by default, & just start completely again next time? It sounds like this edition is as dead as a dodo.

don't be silly, it's on!

.....see you there Saturday! (stupid IOC session is mucking p my schedule, going to be a long day)

Here's a neat wee New Zealand Americas Cup tribute made by NZ's Virtual Eye, the video is billed as being from *the nation born from sailors to the best sailors of the world* - Kia Kaha San Francisc

It only stung for a quick moment before we realised we really were taking on a computer controlled monster. I'm still impressed at the leap Oracle took within a fortnight into a higher level of techno

I have been very proud of New Zealands reaction to the loss. There might be a glimmer of hope that we will challenge again! I have my fingers crossed.

:)

Youth Team NZ has won the Youth Americas Cup, in second place was NZs second team, Full Metal Jacket Racing.

Good effort everyone, a good omen for this weekend.

:D ...oh and Australia came last!!! Ahhh haa...:P

Oracle is in front, but just...NZ with problems at leg 2. These boats are really moving....

Race 1 to Team NZ after a spectacular manoevre put them in front at mark 3 and then power away.

Getting ready for Race 2.

What a race... Heart was pounding! I cant believe they managed to roll Oracle on the upward beat! Brilliant stuff. Now its time for race two. Lets back it up.

Out on the water first race today, hope to see a win by the home team! I can't take much more defeat, drinking early helped yesterday,

Its early days yet Paul.

I still very much believe Oracle has an ace up the sleave.

Spitall could have just been feeling Barker out at the start line. Also Oracle suffered a minor damage to its wingsail at the end of race one and temporary repairs may have come undone in race 2.

As Dean Barker said, both boats a fairly even.

Thanks, setiously thank you. Good luck they both are amazing. This is my home town and I so want this back! He was definitely challenging in the starts with the near bump, so I hope you are right. I'm excited to be here, everything is so beautiful.

We're getting our game drink on, the bridge looms in fog, Breath of Life is blaring. I think Oracle is the evil entity, but it's home!

Spitall classic start...well done Oracle!
