Score is now New Zealand – 8 and USA – 7. With an unfortunate start for the Kiwis – a small collision and a two-boat length penalty – TEAM USA had the lead around Mark 1 and kept it until the finish. Race 18 seems to be a go at 2:15pm. ETNZ still has their provisional card and can cancel the race today but did not. They are geared up to win Race 18 and the America’s Cup. Stay tuned.
