Team New Zealand’s mastery upwind played a huge role again today as they crushed Oracle in the fifth race of the America’s Cup final to take a commanding 4-1 lead.
Dean Barker’s crew thrashed the defenders by 1m 5s in another come-from-behind victory.
The win leaves New Zealand needing five wins to claim the Cup while Oracle still have to claim 10 to hold on to the Auld Mug.
Team NZ is looking good to win, but however Oracle were leading this race until they made an error. It’s great the races so far have actually been exciting.Tags: America's Cup
