America's Cup Final aka The Washout

So it looks like Emirates Team New Zealand are a bit like the San Antonio Spurs in that they are clinical, well organised and don't often lose.

They have taken a huge 3-0 lead in the 'first to five' final against their Italian counterparts Luna Rossa Challenge. The Kiwis are generally a tough team to beat but this year they are awesome and have pretty much dominated all three races of the final so far from start to finish.

In the last race the Italian boat had the better starting position but still managed to turn a 20 metre advantage into a 40 metre deficit. You get the picture...

Yesterday was an off day but today the action gets going again and I think it's fair to say that this will be the last day of the final. I just can't see Luna Rossa Challenge winning more then one of the races, but ehy, it's sailing and what do I know about it?
