Hi,

I never miss a race, since the begining...

The most impressive sailboats of the world (may be after sailrocket)...

Don't miss the race today

Where do you guys see the races ?

Here in Denmark, on all 50 cable TV channels, there is no Americas Cup races this year (has been every year till now...)

Do you watch it on local TV stations, or on a pay web channel or ?

You can watch it live or play it later here. No commercials. Great quality. Flippin incredible boats. The Kiwi's are whipping us, but each race is fought hard. Just amazing to watch these giants blast around the course, and what a great venue SF is.

I hadn't watched an America's Cup regatta since 1988, which was the first hostile
Deed of Gift challenge made by New Zealand . I thought we kinda Cheated
because of how we won with that Giant Catamaran against there Monohull, so i never
watched another one till now.

I just watched every race on the You tube reruns.

If Dennis Conner had not used that Cat in 1988, we might not be watching these
totally Awesome Foilers in today's races. There Really Something Spectacular
to view , with those Speeds there sailing at in such Little wind !!!

You think it's , "Back to the drawing board" for us Kiters ??

Here in New Zealand I am blocked by Youtube from being allowed to watch the official stream.

But we have it running on live free to air TV : TVNZ ch1
It is also running live on their website with commercial free content streaming live via from the USA.
I must say the live feed is better and more comprehensive than the TV.
The American commentators are superb and the technical analysis after each race fantastic.

The technical graphics and live speed data makes the racing even more addictive.

LIVE FEED for New Zealand I have running next to the live TV feed.

We will take the Americas Cup home to NZ tomorrow!
