AC-50 - 35th America's Cup - Hamilton BER - Day 4 - Decision today ?

 AC-50 - 35th America's Cup - Hamilton BER - Day 4 - Decision today ? Light winds prevailed again yesterday on the Great Sound of Bermuda and the Defender 'Team Oracle' with Jimmy Spithill AUS was without any chances against the convincing 'Team New Zealand', not due to lack of speed, but above all because Spithill and his team made too many errors. Match point today as with a 6-1 score, ....just one more victory of Peter Burling NZL and his team will bring the Cup 'home' to New Zealand. This could happen this evening UTC.
