I know the square root of not a lot about this sailism lark, but had watched the earlier rounds where Ineos looked like the class of the field. What happened to mean such a dramatic turn-round?

Wind, or lack of it. They seem to need a gale to stay on their foils.

Oh dear. Well whooped. Very interesting to see how the Italians match up to the Kiwis. I guess after this Americas cup is over there may well be - pandemics allowing - some kind of world series? Be great to see these things in 'real' life.

Ineos UK boat never looked as poised, level and steady as Luna Rossa on it’s foils. I’d love to get Ineos UK and Luna Rossa out of the water and have a look at the differences between them. Luna Rossa seem to get better and better. Kiwis are going to have there work cut out for them.
