Re: America's Cup opening races

The first race was fantastic, especially after snore of the LV cup though I enjoyed the RBAC youth regatta. Too bad the last race was abandoned.

What the AC34 needs is another lap. 1 beat doesn't cut it as beating appears to have more passing opportunities.

The second race most likely should have gone to Oracle. ETNZ fouled them at the start it just unbelievable they were not penalised! One of the biggest things about match racing is the start. Now that appears to be taken away by the jury.
