America's Cup sailors have social media #battleofbermuda

How technology helped America's Cup hit mainstream

It's not an altogether unfamiliar predicament for the 37-year-old, who famously fought back from an 8-1 deficit back in 2013 to steal the Auld Mug from underneath the New Zealanders' noses.

Certainly Team USA will be operating from a position of strength in the decisive series. Oracle needs to win seven to keep the silver trophy in the hands of American software billionaire Larry Ellison.

Oracle had entered the series with a one-point advantage from an earlier regatta but New Zealand wiped out that advantage by winning the first race.

Helmsman Peter Burling, 26, took the lead in the fourth race and extended it, as he had in the previous race.

Oracle Team USA races Emirates Team New Zealand during the first race of America's Cup match sailing competition Saturday, June 17, 2017, in the Great Sound of Bermuda. We've got an incredible team on the shore - boat building team, design, engineering.

"It's been a massive effort to get this far, we've faced a lot of adversity over the last couple of weeks with things like the capsize. but our shore crew have really dug deep to get us a boat that's very close to 100 percent for the finals", Burling said on Friday.

"I think it's pretty obvious - these guys are faster", Spithill responded when asked the difference so far between the two boats.

"If we have to change hulls, its nearly twice the price to have our chance to perform", Cammas said.

A late mistake by New Zealand, helmed by Peter Burling, saw them plunge off their foils and slow dramatically, but even that wasn't enough of a window for Spithill, with New Zealand winning by 30 seconds.

Coutts has been the CEO of Oracle Team USA since it beat Alinghi in 2010.

"It looks like we've got some good sailing days coming up and we'll be on 24-hour shifts".

The first team to earn 7 points wins the America's Cup.

"We will go away and look at what we need to improve because we all know for a fact that Jimmy (Spithill) won't give up and so we have to keep progressing".

On Thursday, Emirates Team New Zealand posted photos on its Facebook page showing Oracle crewmen carrying bow sections to SoftBank Team Japans base, speculating that Oracle was assembling a backup boat using the Japanese platform.

But the Kiwis later came off their foils during a hard maneuver and slowed dramatically in light, shifty wind, losing half their lead.

Two races are scheduled on both days this weekend, beginning at 14:12 local time (1:12pm ET). They have built four stationary cycling stations into each hull to tap leg power instead of traditional arm power from the grinders to power the hydraulic systems that control the wing mainsail and the daggerboards.

"I think what happened is that we lost a rudder", revealed Spithill, reflecting on the manoeuvre that all but ended their challenge.
