    Winds unexpectedly leveled at 18 knots so the race is a go with the upper wind limit being a whopping 24 knots. I was way off on my tide.

    Well I missed the Start and the first 2 legs but Oracle beat ETNZ by 17 seconds I believe. Both boats were hauling ass downwind @ almost 43 knots.

    Looks like both boats had a 3 small collisions in the Entry box 20 seconds before the start. NZ came in too hot towards the windward marker, slammed on the brakes and Oracle tapped them on the rear. Oracle then had Starboard right away and sat on NZ at the start line until they fluffed to a dead stop. Jimmy is and amazing skipper man. This is all coming from looking at that Virtual Eye thingy they have.

    And of course AC facebook page is at full Nuclear meltdown...unreal.

    Damn, they beat them by :54. That is huge when your boat goes over 40 mph.
