Oracle continue to gain. They are getting much more speed at the moment.
Lead out to 470m for Oracle.
And it continues to increase. Up to 540m now.
Oracle will have another decent lead around mark 3.
At the bottom mark Team NZ were a minute behind. Have they cut into it? Might not be by much.
And straight onto the foils they are off.
Team NZ have cut the lead by 30 seconds upwind but a very slow rounding by them.
Team NZ need to find something extra here. Oracle found a windshift as few days ago on the same line Team NZ are now. But that was when the ebb tide was out.
Both boats at around 35 kts.
Oracle flying away in front. Not much Team NZ can do from here. The lead is still around the 400m mark.
They pass Alcatraz and eye the next mark.
Not a great gybe by Oracle
Might be too litte too late.
But the lead was down to 150m there.
Team NZ off the foils as well. Oracle gain back
And they now eye the finish line for their second win of the day.
Another solid performance by Oracle.
ORACLE WIN RACE 15. TEAM NZ 8 ORACLE 5
Great racing from the Americans.
