America’s Cup, Race 1/2

This post is part of my America’s Cup in San Francisco blog post series.

Finally it is September and the first day of America’s Cup racing arrived. After the lopsided races in the Louis Vuitton Coup, we finally got two teams competing…. or almost… Emirates Team New Zealand won both races, although with a much smaller margin, but without any doubts. So the score is 2 to -2. (Yes, Oracle Team USA first needs to climb out of a hole to get to 0 due their penalties for illegal modifications to their AC45s).
