Not all bad news for Team NZ fans. They have port advantage in race 10.
Oracle gybe again and yet again it's a very clean gybe.
They are in great form today as they eye mark 4
Oracle about to cross the finish line.
They gained again on that final downwind leg.
Oracle were impressive from start to finish. A great start and faultless throughout the race. From now on the race starts are going to be huge. Previously Team NZ could afford to give up the start and pass later down the course. Doesn't seem like that's the case.
Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker said he always expected Oracle to find their rhythm as the series went on.
"They've definitely stepped up and we knew they would," he said.
"We know this is going to be a battle and we've been saying that right from the start. These guys are going to give it away easily."
Hang around for race 10. Strong winds could postpone it again. Let's hope it's jnot while Team NZ is leading again.
That was some racing in race 10. Oracle took the lead briefly but Team NZ held on. That's want you want to see. Both these boats attacking each other. Amazing viewing. They'll be back again in races 11 and 12 on Wednesday. Team NZ will have the vital port advantage in the first race. With two wins to go they 'could' claim the Auld Mug on Wednesday.
To clarify races 11 and 12 will take place on Wednesday.
