Spithill skippers Oracle to 1st win in America's Cup

New Zealand apply the pressure on USA in final

Younger, brighter faster

That win means that the 35th America's Cup will continue into Monday 26th June as neither team can reach the seven points needed to win the 35th America's Cup in the two races scheduled on Sunday 24th June.

That is, unless Jimmy Spithill and Oracle Team USA have any comeback magic left. The Kiwis had a bad maneuver and Spithill sailed into the lead and on to victory.

The Kiwi syndicate won by more than two minutes in race five of the final series, leaving them needing three more wins to lift the Auld Mug.

Dennis Conner, who for so long was public enemy number one in New Zealand, is adamant the regatta needs to return down under for the sake of its own future.

Oracle Team USA have won their first race of the America's Cup in Bermuda, beating Emirates Team New Zealand by 11 seconds in race six.

Without time to make major modifications to the boat, technique will be key against the Kiwis, who have been spot-on in maneuvering their boat, especially in light to medium breeze. In sailing these boats, split-second decisions can lead to big gains or big losses. Coutts is said to have extended an "olive branch" to Bertarelli who is in Bermuda to watch the Cup finals.

Spithill claims that the race officials have been giving away "soft" penalties in favour of Team NZ.

The capsize brought back memories from San Francisco in 2013, when Andrew "Bart" Simpson was killed in a similar incident. Team New Zealand appears to have nailed its design package, from its foils to its revolutionary cycling grinding system to how skipper Glenn Ashby controls the shape of the wingsail to its windage.

Emirates Team New Zealand capitalised on mistakes from their rivals to leave them 4-0 ahead and just three points from victory.

New Zealand made some very aggressive choices with this boat and they have paid off, but today Oracle seemed to have better speed than the first two races. We had one in the first race in the qualifiers against us, they should've got one at the top mark and the umpires admitted that. "Even with personnel changes, there's this culture that's developed".

While an Auckland cup would be more expensive for some sponsors and create challenges for televising the event in some countries, sponsors such as Land Rover which supports Britain's BAR team do not see it as a deal breaker.

"Position one is more of a mercenary". They've taken quite a different approach than all of the other teams in a number of areas.

"I have been really impressed by the team's constant on-board communication, how they kept their cool under pressure and really delivered on the boat handling during the tricky conditions".

Burling defended the Kiwis taking a few days off. He sat out the 2007 match after getting sacked by Swiss boss Ernesto Bertarelli.

The New Zealanders then streaked away and built a convincing lead to the finish, flying into the line on their space-age 50-foot catamaran in front of a packed grandstand in the purpose-built America's Cup Village.
