Kiwis Win Race 5 - America's Cup

Challenger Emirates Team New Zealand leads Defender ORACLE TEAM USA 4-0 after a 1:05 victory in Race 5. ORACLE TEAM USA led at the first two mark roundings, but the Kiwis sailed past the defender after two tacks on the upwind leg. From there Emirates Team New Zealand had much better speed and opened a lead it would not relinquish.
