Well, knock me down with a feather! When Mark Lagesse said Shosholoza would be disappointed if they didn't beat Luna Rossa, that just seemed like the usual bravado you get from sailors after a good day on the water. Apologies, Mark, I should never have doubted you!
The South Africans continue to shock and surprise, while Luna Rossa becomes more and more of an enigma. No sooner have they been whopped by the little people (in financial terms, anyway), than they hold BMW Oracle to one of the most tense and thrilling matches yet seen.
We may only have had three days' racing so far, but every day has produced a big upset. Long may it continue.
