America's Cup; Kiwis vs USA!

I watched the Luis Vuitton cup Sunday with the Kiwis triumphant. One thing I will say, these foiling cats are fun to watch! Wow, they foil like 99% of the race. 7knots of wind and 24 knots of speed! Should be a fun cup starting this weekend. https://view.e.aimmedia.com/?qs=8005...3c84cc9d1f545f

Well, that was poorly sailed by Oracle! Kiwis 2 wins, even though they were a bit faster in the light air....Oracle needs to learn how to gybe/tack without stopping boat... jeez that was terrible, first race and the one big fauxpax in race two.

NZ off to a good start. Hopefully it's as closely contested as last time!

Yup, we all remember how that worked out.

As you say:
