Americas Cup Teams Start Competing – in Boats! 2


After months of sailors and team principals behaving like heavyweight boxers before a fight, the chance came today for the talent to show if they can sail as well as they can shoot their mouths off. The much anticipated Louis Vuitton Pacific Series bagan in Auckland. 
BMW ORACLE had a bye today, but Greek Challenge provided some drama with a collision at the start of their race with Alinghi. 
Todays Results were…
  • Pataugas K-Challenge beat China team
  • Emirates Team New Zealand beat Damiani Italia Challenge
  • Team Origin beat Luna Rossa
  • Alinghi beat Greek Challenge (who were awarded a score of -1 following a collision)

    What's with the soundtracks on the LVPC site? Not only do I have to download Microsoft Silverlight, I then have to watch an ad for Virtual Eye with a really unnecessary soundtrack behind it.

    For those of us not in NZ. Some highlights would be nice. Though I can't find them anywhere.

And if I launch the virtual eye stuff it opens in a new link with the soundtrack from the LVPC homepage still going, so I get two soundtracks….. Argghghh
