Uh oh, SUI 6 metre lead. Commentators believe that the right hand side is " a really powerful position"

Now Alinghi tack away, purportedly a good sign for NZ... We have forced them into a tack by sticking close and not giving up a lead so far

NZL 124 metres. Seperation substantial right now. Team NZ to the left, Alinghi to the right, close to the right hand side of the course - right layline.

And this from TVNZ:- No audio from the onboard mics so far today. Apparently the King of Spain is in Valencia and numerous radio frequencies are being blocked! Disapointing, who cares about the King of Spain? We're from the antipodes!

Why are we not allowed to be proud of our country like that?

Now Alinghi tack back at us, they look set to collide as they angle sharply towards us... and keep nearing... NOw we tack also away to the left, they immediately respond with a tack to the right...

In and away, in and away - I hope that helps you picture it. Now they repeat, makes for great pictures, they appear set to collide before we start the dance again...
