Re: America's Cup opening races

In the first race Oracle won the winds were high. And Oracle did well on the 3rd leg. The next two races won by Oracle saw close to the max winds and Oracle won handily. The last race yesterday the winds dropped a bit and ETNZ won.

I don't know for sure it's just the winds and I don't know where the split lies if it is, but so far Oracle hasn't won a race when the winds weren't blowing hard (relative to the max.)
