Final race of the America's Cup tomorrow please

americas-cup-logo-300Whatever happens on the water in San Francisco tomorrow, in my mind, whoever wins the next race should be the winners of the 34th America’s Cup.

Sure, Oracle have been docked two points for cheating, but I don’t really fancy the idea of winning the cup on a technicality.  Nor do I fancy the thought of the decision being made by lawyers if Oracle do end up making it to 9 wins on the water first.

The ratings have been incredible as the entire nation have gotten in behind Team New Zealand but I really do feel that it’s our last chance tomorrow seal it.  If not, it’s not going to be a case of our team choking.  The other team will have beaten us by simply improving their boat speed and crew work.  (Unless, of course, they’ve added some extra lead to the boat)

Either way, the regatta has been close.  The sponsors will all be happy with the added airtime for their brands and the viewers have had a real spectacle on their hands.  The coverage has been great, despite the TV One commentary team, and I’m sure everyone will be somewhat sad to see all the excitement come to an end.  (Not so much if we win, of course).

So please, Team New Zealand.  Win the next one!
