ORACLE WINS THE AMERICA'S CUP - Greatest Comeback in Sailing History - Nay - SPORTS HISTORY

Down 8 to 1, one more loss meant losing the cup, and what does Oracle do?  Rattle off 9 straight victories and successfully defend.  Amazing stuff really.  It was a close race at the outset, ETNZ took the lead right away, but once again the third leg was the huge deciding factor.  Foiling upwind Spithill took the Oracle 17 and stretched the lead.  It was never in doubt after that.  47 second delta.  See you in 3 or 4 years.
