Burling, Kiwis beat Oracle third time in America's Cup

Pope Francis looks on after his private audience with German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the Vatican Saturday

Jimmy Spithill, the Oracle skipper who broke more than four million Kiwi hearts in San Francisco back in 2013 (no, we have not forgotten), put on a courageous face yesterday after Emirates Team New Zealand dished up two resounding wins, by 30secs and 1min 28secs.

The challenging team showed their dominance in light winds, pulling away for convincing victories in all four races.

Analysis - Could this be the "San Francisco moment" when an ascendant Team New Zealand is savaged by a revitalised Oracle TeamUSA?

"It was such a tricky day for both teams, we made a few human errors with our boat handling that we need to work on and address." said Ashby "These guys are only going to get stronger, so we need to also". It will be very important not to get ahead of themselves and keep working using the recipe that has been successful so far.

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

The helmsman said he has been blown away by the hordes of flag-wearing New Zealanders at the Americas Cup Village as well as the teams local fanbase in Bermuda.

“Were really happy with where the boats at and it was fantastic sailing out there today.

"That's what you have to do to win yacht races - you have to perform under pressure". "It's quite clear we need to make some changes".

FATHER'S DAY 2017: Is your dad the best in East Lancashire?
"The depth of the love and patience that I have for another human being, that's what's changed me - even at 45", shares Scott W. Dad , you are the only reason why I would want to believe in heaven-because that is the only place you deserve to be in.

Asked if that meant Team USA might borrow some ideas from New Zealand, Spithill didn't balk.

Although they have won three races, the Kiwis lead Oracle 2-0.

Jimmy Spithill's ORACLE TEAM USA made the worst possible start to their defence of the "Auld Mug" as they were handed a penalty for crossing the start line fractionally early. Cycling nerd John MacLeary wants to know whether the cyclors on board the New Zealand boat wear trainers or cycling shoes.

Four years ago, New Zealand were eventually overhauled by an Oracle team that featured Britain's Ben Ainslie as tactician in what is regarded as one of sport's great comebacks.

The USA were able to capitalize on a wind shift to narrow the gap dramatically, but a poor manoeuvre cost them and New Zealand went on to win comfortably. As both boats headed towards the turn the gap was down to just over three seconds, and it looked like the U.S. team might record their first win of the America's Cup Match, presented by Louis Vuitton, but it was not to be.

Spithill's Oracle team now face an uphill battle to win the 35th edition of the competition, where the trophy is earned by the first team to reach seven points.

Race Two: Emirates Team New Zealand beat ORACLE TEAM USA by 1 minute and 28 seconds.
