Oracle AC72: Rocking with a touch of Twist

Great work for Oracle shore and crew team, incredible comeback, they even managed to match Artemis in the mid range while 'floating', and left them wondering while foiling. Flex was reduced but the 'twist' and the bareaway devil are still there. Foiling fast & early but with a 'flat tire' ... not nearly as smooth as ETNZ. I really hope also they'll add more volume/error margin to the 2nd boat, but sometimes high tech & unlimited design resources blinds common sense and 25knots bareaways with this version is still high risk.
