The TV guys. When I was able to watch they used a computerized sail tracker that showed the tracks of each boat and how they'd try to steal the wind off the other boat, and the strategy they used. It would put a computer model of the boats with a line behind them to show their movements.

The whole course is laid out which really helps when you are not there in person and they are swapping from boat to helicopter.

Sail tracker helps too for us land lubbers!!

But it looks like they have something similar onboard that they refer to while sailing. Not sure what they call it, hence my confusion.

US's jibing needs to improve!

Kiwis lead, 2-0

Happy Fathers Day!!

Kiwis are running away with this.

They are fast! A couple touchdowns aside the US looks so far behind from the start.

Speaking of which... wth US!!! You had them dead to rights at the start of race 4! They say there was too much time but you have to try. Sad being pinned against the start line.

Till next weekend...
