The racing is really heating up in the Finals of the Americas cup series, as Emirates – Team NZ takes on the defending champs Oracle – Team USA. We have been on the edge of our seats every day and the action is far from over yet!
I think the whole country almost had a heart attack on Sunday as we watched our boat teeter on the edge of disaster – luckily for us the wind gods were on our side and she righted herself… phew!
At 6 to -1 we looked to have it all but in the bag – yet a frantic pull to bits of the Oracle boat has seen things begin to even out. Several commentators have described the Team NZ victorious race 2 of Monday morning as the best they’ve ever seen! We were all here at the office shaking in front of our computer screens.
Lets hope that those famous words are spoken this week…”And the America’s cup is (once again) New Zealand’s cup”… and don’t forget your red socks!
