Hindered toward the beginning by starboard passage, it cruised immaculately in the pre-begin to win the correct side of the course which was supported ahead of schedule as the breeze tipped 15 degrees to one side.
After twice crossing before Luna Rossa, the Kiwis made a beeline for the left and adjusted the primary imprint 7 seconds ahead. Group New Zealand went to one side at the highest point of the initially run yet the race shut everything down lighter breeze at the lower part of the course.
Part of the way through the six-leg race New Zealand was 27 seconds ahead. Adjusting the last imprint it drove by 49 seconds and, with no indication of pressure on the New Zealand boat, the race was everything except over.
Everything considered, the early reports that Group New Zealand had the quicker boat appear to have been borne out.

New Zealand broke the halt and took a 5-3 lead.
The 10th race on Tuesday was the nearest of the match. Luna Rossa drove again however by just a single second at the primary door and by close to nine seconds around the following three imprints. Be that as it may, it split from Group New Zealand at the leeward imprint, gone to one side of the course and the New Zealanders showed speed again to cruise past.
Ultimately it very well might be lamented that all races in the match were cruised in light breezes and the maximum capacity of these astounding boats wasn’t seen.
