You mean some thing like a large fine, loosing a point, and that point being gifted to ETNZ as well as being forced to make their boat comply with the ACC rules Wink. Here is hoping.

Well after getting coverage of the first 4 Americas Cup Matches, I was sad to find out today that the Aussie has stopped broadcasting this event! Instead AFL seems more important  Yell.

Either way good luck to the ETNZ boys.

Race 5..
A Disaster!! A mixture of bad luck and shotty team work. TNZ deserves to be scorned for that display! Sure a sail can blow out but next time instead of rushing to get the next one up, take your time and make sure its connected!!
Bitterly disappionting.. You have just lost our hand we had on the cup.

Despite that disaster I thought ETNZ did exceptionally to get to within 50metres by the end of the race.

If anything and an Australian crew were in this situation, backed into a corner, they would be able to pull one from the bag. Lets hope ETNZ can do the same.

Best of luck ETNZ.

Great race. Unfortunate result.

To cop a penalty before heading around Gate 3 and be trailing by >100m, only to lose by 2 seconds after performing the penalty turn at the finish?!?

Gutted... so close, yet so far.

Team New Zealand, you have done New Zealand proud. I personally hope Team New Zealand will be in the 33rd edition of the Americas Cup in some form. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we know if Team New Zealand will compete in the near future.
