Re: America's Cup opening races
Maybe my memory isn't as good as it once was (okay, not maybe...) but I'm remembering Jobson saying yesterday that once the winds picked up the Kiwis surged ahead, especially on the 3rd leg. But in race 4, the wind was 20+ and Oracle pulled out a close win. Even more telling was the fact this was the first race where Oracle didn't get creamed on the 3rd leg, the only upwind leg.
So maybe Team Oracle needs big winds to win. Where is Jobson when you need him?
