America's Cup: To the Wire

Wing-sailed multi-hulls! ORACLE TEAM USA, Emirates Team New Zealand in winner-take-all race for the 34th America’s Cup:
After staging an improbable comeback from 7 points behind and with no margin for error, ORACLE TEAM USA has forced a winner-take-all race {25 September} for the 34th America’s Cup after sweeping both races {on 24 Sept}.

ORACLE TEAM USA won Race 17 by 27 seconds and Race 18 by 54 seconds and now stands even with Emirates Team New Zealand on the scoreboard with 8 points each. Only twice before in the 162-year history of the America’s Cup has there been a winner-take-all final race, in 1920 and 1983. In 1920 the defender won and in ’83 the challenger won.
NBC Sports Network 1-3pm US Pacific time (4-6pm US Eastern).

If you like fast sailing boats in SF Bay, it doesn't get any better than this.
