Unbelievable! 8 races each for the America’s Cup

The scoreboard tells the story. Two race wins today and the the team that wouldn’t quit has come from 7 races behind to tie it up at 8 races each.

USA - 8 New Zealand - 8

USA – 8
New Zealand – 8

A fantastic come-from-behind win in Race 18 sent the USA into the final day of the America’s Cup…..only 1 race to go to decide the winner of AC34….the longest and most closely contested America’s cup in its 162 year history.

 

Unbelievable stuff……….the “Oracle Team USA” has caught up to the very impressive Kiwi team and evened the score at 8 races each. Not only did they start with a 2 race penalty on September 7, but then lost 8 races to give New Zealand an 8 to 1 score.

 

Our beautiful ‘America’ is right in the thick of the action…..seen here at about 3:00 pm today waving the “USA” and “Oracle Team USA” flag….what a site.
