Re: Is it time to fire the crew?

Just watched the race replay...

The move at Mk 3 was pretty unexplainable, but it turned a small lead into essentially being even on the next cross when TNZ had to duck.. The fact that TNZ went on to build a 1500 meter lead points to other issues than that one move. TNZ simply a faster boat?? Did Oracle damage something that slowed them down in the subsequent legs?

Hard to believe they'd play their one postponement card over bruised egos...
