America's Cup SF rewards those who wait and wait and wait and the down and out defender ORACLE TEAM USA has knocked the sailing world out with its come back, rising to the occasion and performing like mad when things look lost, sweeping Sunday's races, 14 and 15.
The score is now 8 to 5. The next racing day if ORACLE sweeps again will make the score 8 to 7. The day after, if ORACLE sweeps again it keeps the Cup in the USA.
Kiwis still need just one point, remaining at match point but that position looking more precarious by the day.
Many Americans turned out today and it's as different from Saturday as night and day. The sun is shining on ORACLE TEAM USA and its ever-so-worthy opponent, the Kiwis.
