"We're frustrated with race one. They go fast, and when they go wrong, situations can get bad", Murray said.

Conner wants the regatta back in New Zealand.

"The closing speed on these boats was over 50 knots and we had to avoid really early", Burling said. As the rules detail, the Challenger would carry a one point disadvantage (ie, minus 1), meaning they will need to win eight races to take the trophy whereas the Defender need only win seven races.

It's a realistic target, given four of the team who won the inaugural Red Bull Youth America's Cup in San Francisco in 2013 graduated to Emirates Team New Zealand - Burling, Blair Tuke, Andy Maloney and Guy Endean.

"Right now they [people] don't like it", Conner stated.

"If anything, when he was yelling at us we weren't even listening at that point", Slater said, adding that the teams have access to the same information within seconds, so that they can see why a decision has been made.

"Both Pete and Glenn are a massive asset to the design team because they are intimately involved in everything we do".

They were one of the only teams to consistently get up on their foils as they eased away from the rest of the fleet. "That's good. I love seeing that".

EJ Dionne: A victory for party, not Trump
Jaffe supports Medicare-for-All, one big issue that Pelosi has come under fire over by her constituents. "People in OH don't grab me about Russian Federation at all when I'm home", Ryan said .

Trump signs 'historic' bill to transform VA
The American Federation of Government Employees , the largest federal employee union, opposed the bill. The Senate bill calls for a longer appeal process than the House version - 180 days versus 45 days.

Coyotes get D Niklas Hjalmarsson in trade with Blackhawks
Hjalmarsson, a fourth-round pick in the 2005 draft, had 23 goals and 120 assists in 623 career games with Chicago. Saad has played with the Blue Jackets the past two seasons after the team acquired him from the Blackhawks.

However, despite the setback, the American team responded spectacularly, closing the gap completely rounding the second gate before taking the lead in the first pass of the America's Cup Match, presented by Louis Vuitton, on leg 3/7.

However, Oracle Team USA's new-found speed paid dividends on leg 5/7 as they cut the gap to their rivals and engaged in close-quarter racing.

"We were happy with the umpires".

The umpires are armed with a graphics system called "UmpApp", which allows them to make calls based on information that is accurate to millimeters and milliseconds, and are focused on that to make sure they make the right call quickly.

The U.S. victory in the second race of the day gave the team backed by billionaire Oracle founder Larry Ellison hope of another comeback against New Zealand.

Peter Burling said: “The great boat we have got a little bit quicker.”. "It's just awesome that it's all worked out, all the ideas that the designers had and then for the machinists and boat builders to build it, and then to go out there on the water and actually see it working as we dreamed it, is a pretty awesome thing to deliver for the boys".

Little separated the boats for the remainder but victory was effectively sealed when Spithill made gains late on leg five upwind and shot sufficiently clear downwind.

Hunkering down ahead of what could be the biggest two days of their campaign, Team NZ had a short training session this morning before wheeling the boat back in the shed in the early afternoon ahead of what could be the among the most significant few days in the syndicate's history.
