The America’s Cup Match, presented by Louis Vuitton leaderboard now stands at 6-1 to Emirates Team New Zealand who need only one more race to take the ‘Auld Mug’ back to their home country.

“We were absolutely delighted with how the day went,” said Peter Burling after claiming back-to-back victories to take his team on the verge of their first America’s Cup success since the year 2000. “We were disappointed to give away a race yesterday but we certainly made up for it today.

I've loved multi hulls since my first 18' Prindle. Moved on to some 65' Gold Coast Cats.
But those foil cats are beyond awesome. I never cease to be amazed at the developing technology,

Good Luck Kiwis!

I'm happy for the Kiwi's to have won, but I lost interest in the cup when in 1988, Big Bad Dennis Conner sailed against the NZ team in a cat. The American Cup
was always a single hull yaught race and to change the rules and make a single hull compete fairly against a cat was just a case of America being a bad looser.
It's our cup,,, we make the rules and we want our cup back.

Quote, by Big Bad Dennis,,, I'm sailing a cat,, Someone else is sailing a dog.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
