New Zealand wins 5th straight vs Oracle in America's Cup

With a fourth win at the 35 America's Cup, the underdogs (the New Zealand Yachts Sailing team) have taken a 3 point lead over the Oracle Team USA.

The American team began with a one-point advantage after winning the earlier qualifying regatta, which was erased by New Zealand's race-one win.

But Spithill's been here before.

When he didnt make the world championship team for track cycling in 2015, Team New Zealand called and asked him to test their cycling system. "They go fast, and when they go wrong, situations can get bad", Murray said. We've seen these guys taking days off.

Team USA skipper Jimmy Spithill discounts his dotage at age 37 as a reason for Oracle's struggles.

Oracle came back and won Race 6 by 11 seconds, the closest margin so far.

"I like what I'm hearing about the possibility of going back to a mono hull and not making it the same circus that we have [in Bermuda]", Conner said in an interview with Rachel Smalley on Newstalk ZB's Early Edition. That was the key thing That's why today was very, very important. There are plenty who will tell you that Team NZ overdid the sponsor fulfillment programme to their detriment.

The New Zealander's face was covered as usual with a ghostly mask of sun screen, eyes hidden behind dark wrap around glasses.

"But we also did not sail to our potential".

Burling and his crew fought hard to get back into the race and at one stage got a lead, only to be overtaken and ultimately left trailing in the wake of the US boat as it screamed into the finish, to loud cheers from many Bermudan supporters.

He says: "We are not the initiator of any conflict and war but we do not tolerate creation of insecurity in our country". The UK, another key coalition ally, said it would continue to take part in air operations despite Russia's warning.

"It's clear they had an edge in speed", Slingsby said. "We had a few issues in the first race, even in the second race we had a pretty good lead and we lost it again". He said it was a great opportunity for the shore team to work on its boat.

At 26, Burling could become the youngest helmsman to win sailing's greatest prize. "I don't think we sailed that well today, to be honest".

To which Spithill responded, "It's just beginning, mate".

Team New Zealand, the hard-luck loser to Oracle in 2013, gained during a wind shift on leg four of the sixth race and passed Oracle in the matchup of 50-foot foiling catamarans.

"From a sponsor's perspective, you don't have any certainty at all. the defender decides virtually everything", Jaguar Land Rover's Experiential Marketing Director Mark Cameron said on Friday of the firm's support for Britain's Land Rover BAR team, led by British sailor Ben Ainslie.

In Race 5, Spithill crossed the starting line a split second too soon and had to drop two lengths behind Team New Zealand. Spithill dipped underneath. Both boats pushed the protest button, and the umpires decided Spithill didn't give Burling enough room.

The final is a repeat of the last time the trophy was contested in 2013, when Team USA came from 8-1 down to win 9-8.
