Two races, two breakdowns – one for Luna Rossa yesterday and now one today for ETNZ. The race easily in hand and displaying pace and an overall superiority to LR, ETNZ suffered a electronics/hydraulic failure which handed the race to Prada.
We always suspected that these things were going to break, and in that we have not been disappointed, but if this series comes down to simply who can finish, then it is more doomed than we already think it is.
Can the organizers simply fast-forward to the AC between Oracle and ETNZ? This is beginning to feel like the dawn of a loser forever. Thanks to TV on the Radio for that last line. Photo thanks to ACEA. Jump in the thread for Sunday’s race.
Meanwhile, take a look at what Oracle is doing to get ready for The Cup. This is how it will be won….
