The Pain continues.

How much more can Kiwis take. We were winning the race that would have lifted the America's Cup and then we were hit with a 'time rule.' Yes, you guessed right. The wind was not too much this time, but not enough! We needed another few minutes to get over the line, probably about one kilometre ahead of our nemesis, Oracle. No such luck. The race was pulled, meaning that NZ had to sail yet another race and this time we stuffed up, letting the Americans off the hook. They won because we made a crucial mistake and it was all over Rover. Oh well, we will just have to relive the pain tomorrow and hope that our 5 race cushion will hold up. You can do it, Dean the boys! Who ever said this was going to be easy or boring!
