And we're at 30 minutes. Tick, tick, tick.
Oracle are yet to round gate three. More than two minutes behind.
And they're through the third gate, 2.26 back.
Team NZ are 'speeding' downwind at about 20 knots. They might need to find a little more pressure to make the cutoff
Eight minutes to go until the time limit is reached. It's not looking good...
The lead is at 1200m but we're still some way short of mark four.
Seven minutes. The clock is as important to watch at the sailing.
34 minutes through the race. It's going to take something special to finish within the cut-off.
Team NZ are up on one hull going downwind. Normally they are foiling on little more than a coathanger. That just shows how light these winds are
The lead is at 1200m but that is almost irrelevant now.
Five minutes remain and there's still some way to gate four.
Even Ray Davies is on one of the main grinders as Team NZ try to eke out some more speed to beat the clock
Four minutes to go. Looks like we'll be back for another crack at race 13.
It doesn't sound like Team NZ are aware of the time limit. There's no mention of it on board
Gate four is within sight but, with only three minutes left, it looks like ETNZ will finish agonisingly outside of the time limit.
Ray Davies just said six minutes to finish. That would put him about three minutes off the official clock
Two minutes left. The lead is at 1200m but that doesn't really matter...
Still some way short of gate four and there's 60 seconds left. Not good.
They're going to finish outside 40 minutes - but it will be painfully close.
