Oracle takes this morning's race

It's starting to feel like a slow death for the NZ public and Team NZ, after losing their fifth straight race against Oracle this morning.

While race two was called off due to time limitations, the Americans once again dominated race one.

Despite Team NZ having port entry for race 15, Oracle was much faster at the start and snatched the lead before the first mark.

They continued in that fashion to lead throughout the whole race, chipping away at Team NZ on the scoreboard.

It's now 8-6 to NZ, so it's back to the drawing board for our sailors to figure out how to stop a team and crew that's growing in confidence by the day.
