Re: Is it time to fire the crew?

I don't know that it is entirely fair to blame the crew. From memory the starts have been very close within a fraction of a second and in most cases I think Oracle has been in the lead at mark one and two. Any mistake by either team will be punished at this level.
It seems NZ is faster upwind and they are close otherwise.
That said the NZ team has put a lot of effort in and it shows.
