Yesterday it was blowing Dogs off Chains in AC72 land, with a limit of 20.1 knots with a strong ebbing tide, it hot 24 knots and was blown off. But today looks to be a different story.
Regatta Director Iain Murray expressed confidence at his morning briefing that the conditions would be suitable for racing today, despite another day of strong ebb (outgoing) tide.
'Our intel tells us around 15 knots for first race and 16-17, maybe 18 for the second race,' said Murray. 'Once again, a strong ebb tide today increasing as day goes on: -2 for the first race so a 21-knot limit, and -3 for the second race, so a 20-knot limit. Once again we have a convergence of wind and current, but the forecast looks ok and we feel confident.'
Today is an important day for both teams. Oracle Team USA needs to win the two races to extend the series. Two wins by Emirates Team New Zealand and they win the America’s Cup. A split would extend the series, but serve Team New Zealand better.
'From an event point of view it would be great if the American team had a couple of wins,' said ACEA CEO Stephen Barclay. 'Last week I called Thursday moving day and Team New Zealand did all the moving. I think today is D-day. If Oracle Team USA doesn’t sweep the day, don’t get two wins, I think it will be extremely difficult for it to come back. New Zealand could wrap it up, Oracle could win a couple; it could be all on.'
Also we have races 8,7,6, 5,4, 3, 2 and 1 replays
