Kiwis beat Oracle in America's Cup opener in Bermuda
Kiwis beat Oracle in America's Cup opener in Bermuda
19 Junio, 2017, 15:31
Things could have been so much worse for the Kiwis, avoiding a head-on collision with Oracle at the sixth mark in their first race.
The forecast is for light to moderate Easterlies this weekend, with winds in the 8 to 11 knot range.
Result: The Challenger won both races, but are only up 1-0 due to the convoluted scoring system that benefited the Defender due to their performance earlier in the qualifier stage.
Team USA can take heart from the fact they came from 8-1 down to sensationally win the 2013 America's Cup.
But Burling is taking nothing for granted after the United States of America fought back from 8-1 down to take the famous old trophy when the boats last clashed in San Francisco four years ago.
Look, I really try and portray the team, Spithill said Friday after he and Burling posed with the Americas Cup. "We'll keep battling away and aim to get the remaining six wins needed as soon as possible".
HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) - Jimmy Spithill isn't afraid of a fight. That means they need to win eight races while Oracle needs to win seven.
"We've got five days to respond now and everything is up for grabs".
"I thought we took a good step forward from yesterday, but it is clear we have to find some speed from somewhere, that is no secret".
But that won't stop others from drawing conclusions. The next five days will be the most important of the campaign..
Burling's ease on the water may be because he has most time to sail the boat and focus on tactics.
Weve made it no secret that were made up by the support we get from back home, said Burling, whose team lead Oracle Team USA 3-0 after taking all four races on Saturday and Sunday to wipe out an enforced one-race deficit. "However, I've been here before, and it is still only a point!"
Race two started in nearly identical fashion to the first race, with both teams racing extremely closely to one another as they crossed the start line, quickly accelerating to around 40 knots as they headed towards the first mark.
"We had a little issue on board during the first start", said Spithill. That's what we're planning to race.
Team New Zealand has dominated the opening salvo, winning both races Saturday and Sunday by significant margins through a combination of better starts, slicker crew work, fewer mistakes and a lightning-fast boat, aided to some extent by the "cyclors" or leg grinders in place of traditional arm-powered winches to better power the hydraulic systems.
It's quiet on the Emirates Team New Zealand base, the calm before the storm in Bermuda.

The bailed-out lender has close ties with Aberdeen Asset Management, which bought Scottish Widows' fund management arm in 2013. The combined business will be co-led by Aberdeen's CEO Martin Gilbert and Standard Life's chief executive Keith Skeoch.
"It was an incredibly tricky day out there with the winds and they certainly weren't our best manoeuvres", conceded Burling.
But Emirates Team New Zealand's young helmsman Peter Burling was as phlegmatic as ever on the eve of the Cup.
Throughout the build-up to the America's Cup Match series, New Zealand's Peter Burling has looked the most relaxed helmsmen among the five challenger crews, although qualifying has been testing, and included a near-catastrophic capsize.
But the Kiwis came off their foils during a hard maneuver and slowed dramatically in light, shifty wind, losing half their lead.
I think it just shows that you guys will fall for anything, Spithill chuckled.
"We'll have to go back and look at that because it was obviously a key moment in the race".
"Yes, I'm hoping for an Oracle win, it's just my point of view for Team France".
