America's Cup 2017 @Bermuda: Louis Vuitton Semi Finals

Photo: ACEA / Lloyd Images. "So you think I'm the easy one.." Questionable choice from Team New Zealand selecting BAR as the weakest team for the semifinals. Although they had terrible moments in light breeze Ainslie can own anyone at the start. BAR also showed flashes of brilliant handling and speed through the Round Robins.  Yesterday they lost against Oracle, but if you looked close enough  it was a really good race for Land Rover BAR.

The other concept for selecting them could be not letting Ainslie & the British team getting in into rhythm and face them in better shape on a possible LV Final.
I still remember when Ben started racing the AC45s, the guy is good,  a talented Beast , in every sense of the word as TNZ already knows.

Update: No racing today due to lack of wind. Schedule continues tomorrow Monday June 5th at 2:00PM Bermuda time.
