It's not really about the boats at this point
Really! Oracle is getting hammered on the beat all the time. They really didn't have any real sail handling problems and did pretty much the same route as ETNZ and still were trounced upwind.

Added to this it is almost a complete white wash so far. The teams both contain arguably the best sailors in the world. If the boats were equal Oracle would be a lot more competitive.

This is from a person who wants ETNZ to win. Lastly, it's about time you chimed in Smack.
