This is incredible what happened in America's Cup just few moments ago.
Americans were down 8:1 to the NZL whom had to win just one more race.
Americans won and I am not satisfied as they will continue to destroy America's Cup, as the interest for this competition has dropped for 97 pcnt since monohull competition.Shame!!!!

it is sad day for Sailing as the Cheating team takes the Cup.

anyway this will go into the history books, as the death of the AC. which reasonably sane sailor, investor will like to spend 200 million dollars to be able to compete a cheating team in a possible next AC.
I hope no challengers will come up and Oracle will sit on the Cup for ever. Sad

Game over.

We have to admit however that Americans became much faster in second part of the competition.

Firstly because they were really a lot faster(3-5 knts) in the legs against the wind.

Secondly because they gained a lot by acquiring Ben Ainslie as a tactic who made almost always better choices than NZL.

yes they went faster in the end, especially upwind, but you must have overlooked their illegal option of dynamically changing the position of their foiling daggerboards Rolling Eyes
all just want to forget this one, and not talk anymore on it.
