Racing every day until we get a winner

americas-cup-logo-300Thanks to the two penalty points, Oracle’s decision to play their postponement card, a race abandonment due to high wind and today’s postponement due to high wind, the America’s Cup will now be raced every day until a winner is decided.

Depending on how things go, we could be in for 5 straight race days.  This is unlikely to happen though as the exhaustion of racing those big boats and exerting all that energy will probably produce more errors and ultimately gift results to the team that can maintain their stamina.

One thing’s for sure, the ratings for TVNZ are likely to be very, very good the next few days as Team New Zealand are only two wins away from claiming the cup.

The next race is scheduled for tomorrow morning, NZ time, and can be seen during TV One’s Breakfast special from 8am.
