Emirates Team New Zealand extended on the final run to win by 36-seconds.
"What we saw there was one hell of a yacht race," said Emirates Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker. "It’s nice to sneak away with a win."
In race 2, Kiwi catamaran dominates from start to finish to win a second race in a row. The Kiwi crew, led by skipper Dean Barker, won the two races by 36 and 52 seconds in some fantastic racing.
“That was a fantastic day. We’re really happy with how it all panned out,” said Kiwi tactician Ray Davies.
“That’s not the result we wanted,” said ORACLE TEAM USA skipper Jimmy Spithill. “I think the boats are very close and the boys did a good job on board. We were surprised not to get them a penalty in the start in Race 2, and we weren’t able to accelerate as quick as they did. It’s difficult to come back from behind ; they didn’t make many mistakes after that. The boats are very close and tomorrow’s another day.”
