Rep Power: 11
Average Winning Margin

Oracle: 10 races 402 seconds total, 40.2 sec avg.

Team New Zealand: 8 race, 324 seconds total, 40.5 sec avg.

Seems to be a pretty even match between the boats (Crew/performance/tactics), based purely on the average winning margin.

Part of me wants to see Oracle take and complete one of the greatest comebacks in sports history and part of me wants to see the Kiwi's win it to possibly return to more "traditional" boats and rules.

What would be cool today is that these guys are hitting mark 4 at the same time and it becomes a dogfight tactical sprint to the line.

It has been exciting.

If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
