America's Cup - Spoiler Alert!

I'd like to congratulate Emirates Team New Zealand for just simply destroying Oracle Team USA in the America's Cup Finals!

It was an awesome display of sailing prowess.

Awesome display of the cutting edge in technology.
The tiny country does it with smart thinking way outside the square.

Interesting to see the nationality breakdown in the teams. Definitely not NZ vs USA.

I'm very proud of the teams efforts.
I have absolutely no skin in the game apart from being a Kiwi but after the heartbreak of 2013 in San Francisco it was a great relief to see them successful this time around.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

Well deserved win for the Kiwis, not to mention that Team New Zealand almost shutup shop in late October 2015. As for Oracle Team USA, here's some insight :-)

Nice race. Impressive team by New Zealand. Surely they punch above their weight(foundational ideas, organizational and management efforts). They have a great record in Olympics also.

These boats are amazing, I hope they keep them for the 36th cup, and perhaps a triangular course might see bigger speed as well. It looks like the biggest speed is the start and finish when the boats are reaching to the start and finish line, whereas majority of the race is all running and tacking.
