This time 4 years ago I was bragging about team New Zealand being 8-1 up in the cup series, needing only one more win to bring the cup back 'home.' Who could have imagined one of the great sporting comebacks as Oracle came charging back with a little bit of luck and a slightly suspicious miraculous improvement in boat speed to snatch the prize from our grasp.
This year, in Bermuda, it's the same two teams squaring off, and once again NZ has the early advantage, up 3-0 in the first to seven challenge. We have a new young crew, a new champion skipper and a team of ultra-fit cyclists powering the hydraulics - not to mention a boat that can fly at 40+ knots on its new-fangled foils...
It can't go wrong again this time, surely! Racing resumes again on Sunday after a five-day lay-off.
