Oracle Team USA recovers from early setback

Land Rover BAR’s victory was by no means a procession — they had to fend off late pressure from arch rivals Oracle Team USA, who started slowly, but grew into the weekend.

On the final day the Defender won the last two races and spent the final race racing tacking back and forth in an attempt to impede the progress of the British boat, as the skipper explained:

“In the last two races today, we hit Ben every time we could, but we just couldn't push him back far enough to let a third boat through. The event overall was awesome. I think it's one of the best Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series events.”
