Emirates Team New Zealand lead America's Cup final

Emirates Team New Zealand lead America's Cup final

But Burling is taking nothing for granted after the US fought back from 8-1 down to take the famous old trophy when the boats last clashed in San Francisco four years ago. There are two more races scheduled for tomorrowwith similar light conditions forecast.

HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) - Jimmy Spithill and his mates with Oracle Team USA might need to start tapping out an SOS from the Bermuda Triangle.

It's actually a negative point for Team New Zealand, which needs to win eight races to get the Auld Mug back into the trophy room at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, where it resided from 1995-2003.

The Kiwi team continued to excel in light-wind sailing and again showed superior speed and slick manoeuvres, whipping their 50-foot foiling catamaran around the course at a maximum speed of 38.5 kph.

Racing resumes Saturday and Sunday.

Despite relinquishing the point advantage they held at the beginning of the day, ORACLE TEAM USA helmsman Jimmy Spithill is refusing to panic, especially with the experience of overturning an 8-1 deficit to the same opposition in 2013.

Henderson stumbles late, keeps Meijer LPGA lead
Ariya, playing in her first tournament at the top-ranked golfer, was tied for 30th on 138. Ko dropped to No. 2 in the world Monday after an 85-week run at the top.

"It was obviously a tough day", Spithill said. "We were far from our best today".

As much as Oracle simply sailed its catamaran better as the comeback progressed, there was a defining moment at a news conference.

Oracle does have history on its side. He is an America's Cup rookie.

Team NZ comfortably beat Oracle Team USA twice this morning and are one up in the series. He's also the CEO of the America's Cup Event Authority.

"Look, I really try and portray the team", Spithill said Friday after he and Burling posed with the America's Cup.

"It's a very, very competitive boat, guys have done a lot of work, a lot of upgrading on it and we feel we'll be competitive".

Hodgkinson wrote in a March 22 post that linked to a Change.org petition calling for the removal of Trump from office. Roger Williams, R-Texas, was injured as well as Matt Mika, the director of government relations at Tyson Foods.

It wasn't the cleanest start to sailing's biggest regatta, leaving more questions than answers as both teams headed back to their bases to pore over data and figure out where they need to sharpen up.

Much more is at stake than who wins the "Auld Mug", the world's oldest global sporting trophy, as the final of the competition gets underway in Bermuda's Great Sound on Saturday.

"That was certainly another good day for us - putting another couple of points on the board is really good", said Tuke. "And we're under no illusions the other guys are not going to give us a break".

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

The defenders appear to be in serious trouble as they suffered two more heavy defeats to the Kiwis to fall behind 3-0 in the first-to-seven series.

The always-crafty Kiwis are using a "cyclor" grinding system. 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. Olympic rowing champion Joe Sullivan replaced him for Race 4.

OPEC, and some non-OPEC producers led by Russian Federation , agreed last month to extend supply curbs for nine months through to the end of March 2018.

"With boat speed and good manoeuvres, it's turning out quite nicely for us". "I thought we were faster than yesterday but unfortunately it's just not enough".
