Emirates Team New Zealand vs Luna Rossa Challenge ——————————————————————– www.facebook.com/americascup www….
America’s Cup killed
I’m rooting for the Italians! I have a family of Italians who live in Napoli–friends who are like family–and I love them…
Go kiwi’s. Love looking at the webcast on youtube from the Netherlands, as it would never be on tv over here 🙂
As fantastic as these machines are, I kind of miss the old mono hulls. SUre a race could take 3 plus hours, and there were runaways where one boat was totally outclassed by another. But those races tended to be closer, way more matching racing tactics, Tacking duels galore… I know this class of boat is different but to see a close, hard fought race would be fantastic.
@ard sur.. Thats a dumb comment to make. Im a kiwi here in the US. The simple reason is lose of ad revenue. NZ has 3 or 4 TV channels. The US has way more, its a competitive business here. The LV semi finals are on tv here, the LV finals are on Espn 3 (a website) The AC finals will be televised. Its got nothing to do with the USA thinking they are better. Its about business, pure and simple
So far, I am happy to watch the races on the web; when every race is either a breakdown or a blow out, it’s easy to fast forward to the end. The finals will (hopefully) be much more competitive.
I’m fascinated by these super catboats. I watch F1, MotoGP and Tour de France. Right now, I like AC72 better. I’d like to watch a worldwide racing series based on this type of match racing. I’d like to attend the America’s Cup race next month. The technology and competition will get better with more boats in the race. Keep it going!
Get out in the ocean ya wimps!!!
Kelly-NBC do not want to lose ad sales to USA market due to commercial
free web casts…so they’re greedy too.We defend the cup but can’t watch it!
Skyy Vodka ?? really NZL?? =DD hahah best “sponsor” ever
Luna rossa makes those gypes SO FAST !! too fast if they would co slower they would have time for the other board to take them up and surf for couple sec on both boards and then pull the one up
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Subscribe to my New Youtube Channel, I will subscribe you back!!!
NZL getting battle hardened. GJ still doing more than anyone to promote the sport. Good day on the water. Course seems narrow for size/speed of boats. Too bad they can’t use more past Alcatraz.
Really? How much does it cost to win a start? Actually the better question is how much does it cost to NOT set your watch 4 seconds late? There are ways to be somewhat competitive in match racing when you have the slower boat, but I haven’t seen any evidence that we’ll be treated to such a show.
I believe this was aired live in the USA, on ESPN-3 (which I don’t get). I’m pretty sure ESPN bought the rights to the races on the condition that they wouldn’t have to compete for viewers with a commercial-free live internet feed. Personally, I’d rather watch in my own time without obnoxious commercials.
Luna Rossas second gype was little bit too fast i think they should do it slower so they could get the lift on the other foil like you see new zeland doing that they drive steady on 2 board and then gype and take the other slowly up
@Tom this is because 5 legs are already boring, let alone 7 legs.
@Kelly “” Why can the KIWIS watch it live and US can’t.”” to problem is simple”, US thinks they are great, sorry they are not, well except in the listening to all telephone calls and reading your emails. USA sucks
beedub75 well I really doubt to see 2 boats close on last leg. this is the first race that lasted till the 1st leeward mark; all other races were no races (one boat) or decided before the start line.
@jeremyrainman it is a matter of the kiwi’s being faster and better. even when occasionally LR is even with NZ at the start line, the kiwis are quicker at mark1, luckily!!!
@allen I just saw the complete replay of races 4&5 on youtube /watch?v=DmOySkQHwf8
Guess why, prick. It’s all about the money, not the skills.
work all day, need to watch to catch-up on the races, Let’s get it going!!!!
I don’t understand why the Finals races 4 and 5 is not available despite being uploaded 8 hours ago. I can see the summary video but cannot see the 2 hour replay!
again, the youtube is a youboob, with all their money one would think they could post a simple video, sad
Finally a race that doesn’t look like domination of ETNZ from start to finish. Here’s hoping the Italians can make it closer and closer as the finals progress.
WIN THE FIRST LEG LUNA ROSSA. Just please, once, win the first leg.
Also, I do not understand all the failed attempts at slamming the kiwis at the start. I’ve seen at least 3 starts now from Luna Rossa where they had a fantastic chance to thoroughly beat the kiwis at the start, and failed to do so. Get aggressive at the start!
wonder if we’ll see a race where both boats are on the last leg together. Great boats, ordinary races.
Team New Zealand sailed a perfect race 3 more wins then the big one GO KIWIS
wtf it wont play?
Bottom line. The Italians suck.
Finally a race for number 5.
Great, great boat-handling by ETNZ. And it was awesome to see a close race. This IS exciting. And to the AmCup video producers, thank you thank you putting Nathan on the team. He really knows what’s going on. For example, at the end of the broadcast he explains the “how to” and “why” of foiling upwind “low and fast” to get into a tactically better position. Great stuff Nathan — hope you stay with the team throughout the remaining races.
Agree Fla, The Italians have the slower boat last thing they need is to be losing the starts, Race 4 start was absolutely disgraceful he should have pushed the Kiwis up.
Go New Zealand. Better than the old days. SFO is an awesome place to watch but TV coverage stinks. Why can the KIWIS watch it live and US can’t. Go to an Americas Cup in Auckland sometime they know how to do it and televise it!
Not against this spectacular show. Just a bit disappointed it replaced true America’s cup art of sailing on match racing. Once again, SPORT is becoming a big show where the medias are only focusing on bringing more audience.
Chris Draper is disappointing in the pre-start maneuvers… call Torben Grael!!!
WHY IS THE L/V FINALS 2 LEGS SHORTER THAN THE SEMI-FINALS???????
boring! liked the old days better
Second of today’s races was a training for ETNZ, they’ve just been trying some solutions. Except (eventual) damages there will be no thrill in this final.
One more idea : yankees have turned the sailors into an american football teams (when you look at the gybes and the turns) – although it looks, like the rugby world cup holders are quicker and tougher ones :)))
Just wrote a complaint about showing races 4 & 5 and kazaam…I’ve got video Houston.
I absolutely agree. I’d love to hear more crew audio and see more race VMG, angles, etc.
The only thing that sucks more than this LVC series, is my shopvac…. How could they do such a good job on the ac45 series and then do such a horrible job with the main event.
And really ESPN3… talk about the read headed stepchild of sporting networks. I thought the whole point of this cup was to generate public interest…. you really can’t do that on a third rate sports network. Maybe when ETNZ wins the cup, the Kiwis will bring honor and excitement back to the Americas Cup.
Try setting to 240p, then it may launched. Then I changed to “auto” and playback quality improved for me. Might work for you.
The coverage of this AC is completely shite. Get it right guys.
ETNZ looking really good in light winds. AC final should be really interesting.
racing is anti-climatic. over at the start.. unless there’s a breakdown. and now we can see the delayed broadcast only in 360p at this time. To the credit of those involved, great job on all the technical video razmataz, but if the racing isn’t close, I don’t think we’re going to convert the masses. As always, the AC industry veterans – the intrenched insiders – just don’t understand what will make the sport approachable to non-sailors… never have. This had been going on for two decades now.
Wow, no post 2nd race comments from Luna Rossa!
