US yacht still in running to keep America’s Cup

US yacht still alive at America’s Cup

Skipper Jimmy Spithill and defending champion Oracle Team USA accelerated off the starting line and stayed ahead of Emirates Team New Zealand to win their fifth straight race and remain alive in the America’s Cup on Monday.

Oracle’s remarkable comeback closed the Kiwis’ lead to 8-6 and no doubt has all of New Zealand on edge.

Team New Zealand has been on match point since Wednesday, only to watch Spithill and Oracle’s improved 72-foot catamaran sail ahead in a determined attempt to keep the oldest trophy in international sports.

Oracle has won eight races. But it was docked two points for illegally modifying boats in warm-up regattas called the America’s Cup World Series, so it needs three more wins.

The margin in Race 16 was 33 seconds.

Because Race 16 was delayed a half-hour due to light wind, Race 17 was postponed until today. Races 17 and 18, if necessary, are also scheduled for today.
