And Oracle across the line in front, with a flag.
Oracle grab the leeward position and hunt Team NZ. They are nearly standing still
As the windward boat, Team NZ have to keep clear
Another penalty against Team NZ. What a disaster.
Oracle are shooting ahead as Team NZ serve their penalty.
Oracle around mark one with a lead of more than 300m.
The lead at mark one is 16 seconds.
That could be the race. Barker was aggressive, trying to grab the leeward position but had to slow down to get close to the line. Oracle dived underneath them and grabbed all the rights. They then pushed Team NZ high and won two penalties
That's the biggest lead either boat has had at mark one in the regatta. Pretty much a worse-case scenario for Team NZ on the start.
Oracle sailing at 37 knots, Team NZ currently at 31.
The boats touched and Ben Ainslie was screaming at Team NZ, but the Kiwis couldn't get out of there. They were in irons and had little control of their boat
The lead has grown to 400m.
Oracle had all of the rights and Team NZ had to keep out of Oracle's way
That's a massive lead at this early point of the race.
Those two docked points are now proving costly. We didn't think that at 8-1
If the second race is postponed, we will have port entry for the first race tomorrow. That is rotated each day
