We're watching it live each morning on TV since we are currently living in NZ. Glued to the TV, even though classic boat racing and cruising are the games we've always played.
Spithill is Australian and of course Barker is a Kiwi....so it makes it a great New Zealand-Australian rivalry as well.

Full credit to the Kiwis (honestly!), but give credit to some USA input too: Ellison owns Core Builders Composites. It started in the USA (Anacortes, WA), and built Ellison/Oracle's previous AC boats. They then set up the company in NZ. Here's a link.

And TNZ's design team is Morelli and Melvin from the USA.

Spithill is a permanent US resident (California) with a US wife and daughter.

Re: Will Oracle Remain Alive or Will It End Today?

Why do you think US won so soundly after losing so soundly? Bunch of threads going, is this already bring discussed? Seems like there is a story here...

Two words "Ben" and "Ainsley". Crazy how little dinghies and Frankenboats both bend to the same genius. A little glory to the UK here, too.
