Kiwis beat Oracle in first two races of America's Cup

"We thought we were coming back when we wanted to but as it turned out we were wrong, it is something we will have to go back and look at".

"If we have to change hulls, its nearly twice the price to have our chance to perform", Cammas said.

Spithill's Oracle team now face an uphill battle to win the 35th edition of the competition, where the trophy is earned by the first team to reach seven points.

Then again, it could also be a repeat of 1995, when Team New Zealand, then led by skipper Russell Coutts and Peter Blake, sailed a fast boat to a five-race wipeout of Dennis Conner off San Diego to hoist the America's Cup for the first time. The Kiwi catamaran rose onto its hydrofoils and sped off across the turquoise waters of the Great Sound.

"I'm expecting it's going to be one hell of a fight", Spithill said in a skippers press conference on Friday.

The challengers started the regatta with a one-point deficit thanks to Team USA's topping the qualifying round-robin.

However, a six-day break until race five and six on Sunday (NZT) will allow Team USA to make changes to a defence which is teetering.

Earlier, Team NZ extended their lead over Oracle Team USA with their third straight win in the day's opening race.

"You're just going to have to wait and see", Spithill said, adding: "Listen, we've got our race boat".

"It was obviously a tough day", Spithill said. "Today I thought we got off the line pretty well, but they were pretty impressive accelerating".

Race Two: Emirates Team New Zealand beat ORACLE TEAM USA by 1 minute and 28 seconds.

Team USA skipper Jimmy Spithill doesn't believe the cyclors are the key to Team NZ's early advantage in the America's Cup final. "The team's hungry. They're a very, very competitive group". He has won Olympic gold and silver medals with grinder Blair Tuke.

But the Kiwis, the hard-luck losers to Oracle in 2013, later came off their foils during a difficult maneuver and slowed dramatically in light, shifty wind, losing half their lead. Theyre going to be there when we need them.”. "I thought we were faster than yesterday but unfortunately it's just not enough".

However, the United States yacht then hit trouble and Burling was able to guide New Zealand to a comfortable victory by a minute and 27 seconds.

Oracle made huge gains up the fifth leg and were within a couple of metres rounding the top mark, but immediately fell off their foils on a gybe and lost several hundred metres in the space of a few seconds.
