Oracle in that lane near Alcatraz which they found yesterday.
They have more speed and that lead is near 470m.
Meant2bStudying - The setup of the boats actually sees the Oracle tactician doing more work than his Team NZ counterpart. It's always easier when you're in the lead
Both boats on the Alcatraz boundary line as the lead now out to 500m for Oracle.
Clean sailing for Oracle as they look set for their fourth race win and second point of the regatta.
Oracle pass Alcatraz with a lead of 470m.
It looks like Grant Dalton will lose another race. So much for superstition
The second race is scheduled to start at 9.15am NZT
Oracle lead still at around 450m.
Keep the champers on ice New Zealand fans. Oracle are still alive.
Today's race illsutrated yet again how important the start is.
They round mark 4 and head for home.
Team NZ 29 secs behind at mark 4
ORACLE TEAM USA WIN RACE 12
Spithill as he crosses the line: "Let's keep it going, ah"
It's pretty quiet on Team NZ. Not the result they hoped for and we all expected. Still, it's 8-2
There should be more breeze and more current for the second race, assuming it goes ahead
Team NZ mixed things up in the start but it didn't come off. But they probably didn't lose too much anyway because conservative doesn't often get you anywhere.
