All eyes on the wind speed average. Race has been delayed.
The breeze will only increase, so this is a bad sign for those wanting
more racing today.
Might be giving Ben Ainslie a bit too much credit there Pete. I think the NZ boatbuilders who have made changes to Oracle's boat might deserve more.
The boats are preparing for race 10. 3 minutes to countdown. As it stands this race will go ahead. But they will be all eyes on the wind average throughout the race.
Team NZ enter the prerace.
How big is this start going to be? NZ have to defend the left hand side. Oracle will be aggressive for sure.
The next 60 seconds will tell the story. Team NZ just need to hold the lefthand side to get the advantage to mark 1.
Team NZ in a good position.
Oracle looks to hook around but nothing there.
Oracle will have more speed off the line.
This will be a huge sprint to ther first mark. Can NZ hold on.
No protest on NZ and we're off.
Huge move by Barker. Oracle had the speed but Barker just held on to get around mark 1 first.
