Oracle extend lead to 164m as they reach the port boundary.
In these lightish winds, a few extra puffs can make a big difference but Oracle have a handy lead and are keeping their eye on Team NZ
Oracle tacks back towards the middle of the course. Team NZ still head towards the port
"Good numbers here," says Ainslie
ETNZ tack back towards the middle of the course. The lead extends some more for Oracle. Now at 170m.
Yet again ETNZ sitting behind and needing an Oracle mistake to get back into this.
Lots of talk onboard Team Oracle. Pretty quiet on ETNZ.
About two-thirds up this leg. Oracle lead around 130m.
Oracle get up to 20kts as they head towards the port boundary again.
Both teams will be consdiering their options at the top mark. Oracle will probably look to go to the right-hand mark to put themselves in the middle of the course and keep their options open
Oracle lead at 160m as they eye the top mark.
It goes over 200m as Team NZ come out of a tack.
Team NZ need a little wind shift to the left to make up some ground here
Oracle have one more tack before the top mark.
Team NZ don't appear to be laying the top mark so will need to put in another tack
No we're at 20 minutes now. Only downwind leg to go.
Oracle tack and set up their mark entry.
Looks like it will be more than 20 secs.
Oracle round the mark at speed while Team NZ will be slower.
Team NZ need to find something extra on their side of the course.
Both boats are foiling well and over 30 knots. As so often happens for the leading boat, Oracle have made a good gain
