There is some great long view amateur video cam coming from San Francisco. The benchmark foiling gybes by the Kiwis on their flying billboard put them clearly ahead of their rivals. It’s clear that if the America´s Cup was raced tomorrow that Team New Zealand has the foiling control and maneuverability to win hands down. Now the on water pressure is squarely on Jimmy Spithill and his Oracle crew to close the gaps. The clock is ticking.

The mess that is the America´s Cup is headed for the New York Supreme Court, we predicted that two weeks ago and sadly we won´t be surprised to see that eventuate in the next few days.

But today there was a little aside as Stephen Barclay, CEO of America's Cup Events Authority commented on our story on the America's Cup Mediation published in Sail-World, to which the writer, Sail-World's NZ and America's Cup Editor, Richard Gladwell responded quite robustly. Read all about it.

The cream is rising… Great things have been expected of Australia´s Jason Waterhouse and Lisa Darmanin in the Nacra 17 Olympic class, they have been getting faster and faster regatta by regatta. They are atop the leader board after two days of racing at the EUROSAF Champions Sailing Cup in Kiel, Germany. Waterhouse and Darmanin will head into the finals series first overall after finishing with a win, a seventh and a second from Sunday’s three races.
