I thought they were holding it in Valencia, not the Sargasso Sea!

i reckon, the wind currently in valencia is 5.4 knts, but they need at least 7 knts to race

IOC President, Jacques Rogge, who was an Olympic sailor himself, was in Valencia to watch and even participate in an event.

And, yes, for all you Kiwi fans, he was the "18th man" in your Team New Zealand group.

shocking start to team new zealand by losing to Mascalzone Latino! A bad day for new zealand sport. We lost to Australia in the rugby league and in the cricket and now losing our first race at the Louis Vuitton Cup :(

At least the officials are piling them in to get through this exciting but very tight schedual.

Have to admit the ETNZ loss was what was needed to wake NZ up to the fact that we are well and truly not invincible anymore, our first loss in a LV Cup match since the finals series with oneAustralia in 1995!

Wake up New Zealand! This will be a real fight!
