America’s Cup – Oracle Rebounds with a Vengence

Kiwiemirates2After looking like they were in an impossibly deep hole, Oracle Team USA has come charging back. Only last Wednesday, Emirates Team New Zealand was on the verge of winning the America’s Cup.  They had won 8 of the 9 races necessary for victory while Oracle had only won 3. But, as Oracle had been penalized 2 races for cheating during the prior round of races, the tally board stood at 8-1. Now, Oracle has won the last five races.  In absolute terms Oracle and the Kiwis have both won 8 races and the momentum is clearly on Oracle’s side.  All it will take is the Kiwis winning a single race to take the Cup. Based on the last five races, the next one, two or three races, as necessary, will be hard fought indeed.
