This yachting is stressful. The Oracle team are sailing for their life and it really shows. Agressive, tactical and on the limit of making a massive mistake that could easily let Team New Zealand win.
Team New Zealand are sailing the best they can with what they have and just couldn’t seem to make the most of their two opportunities. Fickle wind doesn’t help the cause.
So considering how you’re probably feeling now, argh, what must Team New Zealand be feeling?
Have you ever been in a situation like this? On the verge of winning and having things not quite go your way. Not likely right. Because not all of us have been at the very peak of a sport and had the weight of an entire nation on our shoulders.
This is a unique position and in my opinion we can only yell our support and hope the team pick up on our energy.
Not much work will be happening this morning but I think sometimes it’s better to be: hanging out with people who are holding their breath with you, yelling when the gap is closed and sitting back when they don’t quite make it.
Have a great week and go Team New Zealand!
