The crew of US billionaire Larry Ellison can continue to dream of defending the famous sailing trophy. A brilliant start prevented the decisive defeat against Team New Zealand.
The Americans reduced their deficit in the twelfth race to 2: 8 points and thus kept their hopes of still being able to defend the most important trophy in international sailing.
Finally a race without mistakes
Oracle’s helmsman Jimmy Spithill said: “At the start we made a nice leap forward. The way we sailed our boat has been the best so far. We made zero mistakes. "
Team New Zealands Skipper Dean Barker admitted: “At the start we threw ourselves to them to eat and started the race from the second row. We have to be better than today, but we are very satisfied with the performance of our boat. "
Seven match points left
The 13th race had to be canceled and postponed on the ninth day of the race due to strong winds. The New Zealanders have seven more match points left to take possession of the America’s Cup for the third time after 1995 and 2000. Larry Ellison’s sailing crew has to win seven times in a row to successfully defend the “silver can”.
