AC-50 - 35th America's Cup - Hamilton BER - Day 3

 AC-50 - 35th America's Cup - Hamilton BER - Day 3 After a 5 days' pause, the America's Cup Challenge resumed yesterday with two races. The question, whether 'Oracle' with Jimmy Spithill AUS succeeded to compensate for the speed handicap in the prevailing light air was answered quickly: .... they did with new foils. Only some tactical and handling errors prevented them from winning race 1 and 'Team NZL' put the score one up to 4-0. In the second race, 'Oracle' controlled 'Team NZL' and grasped their first point with a 9 sec advantage to a 4-1 results. This means, that racing will continue at least until Monday to realize 7 victories.

AC-50 - 35th America's Cup - Hamilton BER - Day 1

 AC-50 - 35th America's Cup - Hamilton BER - Day 1 The 35th America's Cup Challenge began yesterday on the Bermuda Great Sound in shifty light winds (8-10 kn) just enough to foil. Two races were on the program with the Cup Defender 'Oracle' with Jimmy Spithill AUS one point up thanks to the bonus as Qualification Series winner.
But it was not 'Oracle's' day. A penalty for crossing the line early and a clearly slower cat during race 1 made up for a clear win for 'Team NZL' of Peter Burling NZL. Even worse was race 2, as 'Oracle' starting on the favored position, could not avoid, that the New Zealanders were first at mark 1 and extended their lead with with the faster boat and perfect handling to over 600 m. But on leg 5, the tactian Tom Slingsby AUS of 'Oracle' almost reduced the 1:35 min backlog with a genious split and sailing the shifts perfectly. But a completely failed gibe got the Americans fall from the foils and 'Team NZL' flew away concluding the race with a 1:28 min advantage, ending the day one point up on 'Oracle'.
Somewhat fresher winds have been announced for the two races today. Will 'Oracle' be able to find a solution to keep the Kiwis back ?
