Burling, Kiwis beat Oracle third time in America's Cup

Burling, Kiwis beat Oracle third time in America's Cup

Oracle Team USA were back on the water Tuesday as they scramble to find answers to Emirates Team New Zealand before America's Cup racing resumes on Saturday.

Ben Ainslie is not about to give up steering the boat in his quest to bring the America's Cup back to Britain and is set to plan his next campain as soon as he returns home next week.

The races were shared today, with Emirates Team New Zealand claiming the first-up race of the day, before Oracle notched up their first point in the series in the second race, claiming their first point of the series.

Until the sixth race, the powerhouse American squad, owned by software tycoon Larry Ellison and crewed mostly by Australians, had been humbled by the underfunded but crafty Kiwis and their fast 50-foot, foiling catamaran helmed by 26-year-old America's Cup rookie Peter Burling.

But judging by one recent news report, the regatta is also stirring political waves for the island nation of Bermuda over the cost of the event. This can be New Zealand's first win at America's Cup since the year 2003 if they can manage to secure four more victories. The break is a massive opportunity for us as a team to go away and regroup. It was penalized twice and had a costly maneuver in the first race, allowing the Kiwis to speed off to a victory of 2:04, the biggest in the match.

"If anything, when he was yelling at us we weren't even listening at that point", Slater said, adding that the teams have access to the same information within seconds, so that they can see why a decision has been made. When the boats reach a certain speed, they rise up on a daggerboard and rudders, with the hulls completely out of the water. But on the other side, that's pretty exciting that there's quite a bit more left on the table. Spithill was 30 when he won it in 2010.

"We had success promoting Neil Hunter from junior to senior team and we can only look forward to more talented young sailors moving up and forward in their sailing careers with us".

Smyth said Oracle "went after" Ashby but failed. "We're all still on an incredibly steep part of the learning curve", he said.

When he didn't make the world championship team for track cycling in 2015, Team New Zealand called and asked him to test their cycling system.

The next time the boats came together, Team New Zealand was slightly ahead and on favored starboard tack.

The defending champions trailed 3-0 after two days of competition and New Zealand strengthened their grip on the 35th edition of the famous race by winning Race Five in Bermuda on Saturday.

And it was Spithill, not the unflappable Burling, who blinked first, incurring a penalty when he crossed the startline early in the opening race to hand New Zealand the advantage.

Races 7 and 8 are scheduled for Sunday.
