That was really good to watch/Follow. I've felt that New Zealand had had a bit luck here and there but that last race was very well done. Amazing stuff.

new zealand had the fastest boat that's what it was. Also probably the best strategy but they kept winning in a straight line. Fun sailing to watch, plenty of close races this year and also drama.

Agreed, when ahead they just extended their lead, when behind in dirty wind, they didn't fall any further behind. But they also seemed to be able to quite consistently pick the best wind/side. One on one and the starts, Spithill/Bruni were better I thought. Spectacular to watch, I really enjoyed it

It took them 6 races to learn how to sail the boat and they never looked back, there were 2 or 3 unforced errors by Luna Rossa but I think at best we would still be looking at a 7-5 ETNZ defence. They sailed better and were just happy for level starts.
