Oracle goes 2-1 to take lead in America's Cup qualifiers

02 June, 2017, 07:08 | Author: Elaine Woods

The Swedish team made amends for an earlier upset defeat to Groupama Team France by ending the three-race winning run of the Team USA with a convincing show of tactics in the 39-second victory. His counterpart on the Artemis boat, Outteridge, was less impressed.

"The boat is getting quicker every day and we just need to keep that going", Spithill added.

"Its very much a learning process at this stage. some of the good learning has come from the mistakes", Barker said after his crew's victory over Groupama.

After boxing in New Zealand at the start, Artemis crossed the line a fraction of a second too soon and, having raced to the first mark, dropped back to allow New Zealand to go ahead. "It is one of the most lovely places in the world and the Bermudians have been incredibly friendly and are very proud".

"I think we were better off keeping foiling, we finished the race and kept the thing foiling all the way into the harbour".

Team New Zealand found the best of the wind down the third leg to round the mark on even terms, but the boats split and Japan managed to protect their edge.

Emirates Team New Zealand are just across a miniscule stretch of water, Groupama Team France are neighbors to BAR, while Team Oracle USA are no more than 100 meters away.

The victor will then face Oracle, who are racing in the preliminaries, but whose place in the final, due to start around the middle of June, is assured as the defending champions.

The opening match-ups will see Team USA against Team France, Artemis Racing against Team Japan, France versus the Peter Burling-skippered Team New Zealand, and Artemis against Britain's Land Rover BAR.

Team USA came out of the turn in front and held on for the win.

Defending champions Oracle Team USA, who were not racing on Monday, are already assured of their place in the America's Cup showdown next month but the real battle lies further down the six-team table with semi-final places up for grabs on Sunday. The victor will meet Oracle in the first-to-seven America's Cup match starting June 17.

Their tightly fought clash was a contrast, with the lead changing hands twice before Team USA made a decisive move at the end of the fifth leg.

"With regards to the rest of the day, we had a fantastic race against Artemis Racing".

"However, I'm extremely proud of the way the whole team regrouped from that defeat and fixed everything in an nearly ideal race against ORACLE TEAM USA". "By the time we got to the dock she was on her way down", Ainslie said.

Emirates Team New Zealand extended all of the way around the race course eventually crossing the finish line 2 minutes 33 seconds over the French team.

Spithill is determined to get that point, even if the team, owned by software billionaire Larry Ellison, isn't always flawless.

"It didn't happen last night so I'm guessing he'll probably to it tonight".
