Is Oracle’s win in danger?  3News reports that ETNZ is preparing a legal challenge to Oracle’s win based on their electronic stability system.

At the same time, Facebook gossipmonger and NZ radio personality Paul Veitchy reports:

There’s some serious rumours coming out of San Fran that something big is going to come out around Oracle and the pre regatta penalty.. and the improvements made to the boat. The rumour mill is in over drive.. watch this space…. bloody interesting talking to several parties this avo about it…

We also saw this from another source:  The yanks put a computer on board after they were down 8 – 1, and should not have been allowed to make this change mid series. So I said why didn’t the Kiwis put one on too, and he said they didn’t have the fun tickets. This computer came out of Boeing, and is the latest in technology, and this made the difference to their boat speed, foil angles and all that other shit that navigators used to wank away about, and was implemented automatically on board, where as the poor cousin Kiwis still had to do all theirs manually. So there you go this is what the press is saying in NZ, but don’t know how true all of this is. Could be sour grapes…

Watch Veitchy’s space to see if this is real or yet more hit counting.  If your Oracle Team USA contract just ran out and you’re looking to unload, post your inside knowledge in the thread.

UPDATE: Thanks to the artificially low wind limits put in place due to the disaster that was the Paul Cayard-led Artemis AC program, today’s racing is in delay, and likely not to happen at all…

It would appear that we just don’t know what is going to happen in the AC today, but one thing we do know is that the end is near and roughly 75% of every television in NZ is watching.  Splits won’t do for Oracle, only sweeps, and they will need three consecutive days of sweeps just to get even. Not gonna happen, but then again, if not for a little divine provenance we might still see ETNZ’s second boat being prepped for racing today…

What will happen? If you have NBCSN, you can watch it happen at 1:15 PM, West Coast, and for Proxy Server congoscenti and non-US or Kiwis, here’s the Youtube link.  In the meantime, you can watch the media going apeshit with last-second mostly-manufactured controversy here (Oracle Tries To Raise Wind Limits), here (GGYC Vice Commodore Calls ETNZ Cheats), here (Russell Coutts is the new Dennis Conner), here (AC Protests Cancelled Out Of Pity For Ellison) and here (Nationality Rules For AC35).

And above, you can get a little Clean while you’re at it, from this morning’s Radio NZ drive time show.

Update: Oracle absolutely dominated race number one today – they owned the start, were faster on every point of sail, and flawless in execution, if you didn’t know better, you would think they switched boats! And yet just as soon as Oracle seemed to begin to establish supremacy in race #9, ETNZ snatched it right back with a come from ahead and then behind victory on the final run to once again take control of the AC, 7-1. A split simply won’t do for Oracle, they need to win every pair from here on out….

Will the hand of god (or an inverted wing) save the Kiwis from their own errors today?  Will Oracle finally have their first 2-0 day, or will Dalts and the boys re-assert their downunder dominance and get just one race from a silver-studded flight home to Orkland.  Watch it above NOW, if you happen to be in a country that allows it.  If not, just hit the Proxy Server thread and take 60 seconds to work around it.  If you have NBCSN on your cable account, just go online to watch.  Talk about it as it unfolds or ask questions in the R8/9 thread.
