If you like sailing just watch these two races again, Enjoy.

Text previous Racing: Spithill needs to go for the boat end at the Start and forget for an instance about getting penalties. TNZ always starts there, and even the AC45s past week had better results. Longer distance to the reaching mark but better angle/speed.

Data Analysis from Races 1 & 2. From our Anon top Pro contributor
Race 1 
- Tack loss 26m TNZ vs 38m for OR
