ORACLE TEAM USA drops its first race at the Louis Vuitton America's Cup Qualifiers

Monday, 29 May 2017

 

For a second consecutive race on Sunday, ORACLE TEAM USA trailed off the starting line, this time following Artemis Racing around the first mark and through the first downwind gate.

Tactician Tom Slingsby and skipper Jimmy Spithill engineered a split at the bottom gate, but the windshifts went in favor of Artemis Racing, who extended its lead one the first upwind leg to 19 seconds.

On the downwind, Slingsby called for an early gybe to set up another split on the final upwind leg. While Artemis Racing responded with a covering move early, they allowed a split further up the leg.
