thanks for my morning chuckle, radar! This was great picture taking - being in the right spot at the right time.

These are amazing sailboats ... and for the USA to come from so far behind is an amazing comeback. Few comebacks can compare. Thanks for posting the race details, Suz.

Funnily enough MOST of the Oracles crew were Aussies and Kiwi's with only 2 US members of the crew. Now that's really outsourcing.
I wonder if the Kiwi's will be game enough to go back to NZ.

Guess who's eating Humble pie as he's typing into his computer.....

I still think that if you're racing an American boat you should be American, Its a bit rich - it wouldn't happen at the Olympics would it. Just putting it out there!

I meant the one's crewing on Oracle.....
Also possibly the kiwis that fixed the boat.
Was it you lot that came up with hydroplaning catamarans in the first place?
As to the kiwi crew, they did well, they at least got to the finals so they didnt do that poorly.
