Emirates Team New Zealand competes against Oracle Team USA in race one in America's Cup Finals.

The penalty handed the initiative to Emirates Team New Zealand, and Peter Burling took full advantage, sailing well clear of his rival Spithill, holding a 32 second lead by the turn at the second gate.

Ashby, the skipper of Team New Zealand, led the Kiwis to a 3-0 lead in the first to seven wins series in Bermuda. Oracle needs to win seven to keep the silver trophy in the hands of one of the worlds richest men, software tycoon Larry Ellison, who has been watching the shellacking from a team support boat.

"You're just going to have to wait and see", Spithill said, adding: "Listen, we've got our race boat".

"The up-side, for us, is there's a lot of technology out there now", Spithill said.

Cyclors: It grabbed the headlines ever since Sail-World.com's Richard Gladwell broke the story that Emirates Team New Zealand were using cycle power as opposed to the arm-grinders all the other teams chose.

Mom Arrest-Child Deaths story
The two young children - a 2-year-old girl and a 16-month-old boy - were found dead in Parker County , Texas on May 26. She allegedly admitted to police that she went back inside her residence and smoked marijuana before falling asleep.

It is not the first time Oracle has been up against it in 2013 they came back from 8-1 down to nick the trophy from New Zealand when it was the first to nine.

Oracle Team USA's track record of performing when their backs are against the wall and the intervening five days should set up a fascinating showdown to the competition as both teams race to modify their boats and improve performance.

"We need to make some serious changes".

We learned Peter Burling's Emirates Team New Zealand were not fazed by the narrative which had depicted Spithill as the superior starter, as the kiwis were 2-0 off the start line.

With a five-day gap until the next races, Oracle will work 24-hour days with their design and technical team to improve their boat speed, as they seek to match New Zealand's edge.

"We've made it no secret we're here to try to win the America's Cup", said the 26-year-old Burling. "I know we're much happier starting where we are, without being down on the scoreboard".

'High degree of certainty' that Isis leader Baghdadi is dead, says Russian Federation
The June 7 coalition strike report lists one strike near Mayadeen, that "engaged an ISIS tactical unit and destroyed a vehicle". The statement was issued in the wake of the ISIS losing considerable ground in their strongholds of Iraq and Syria.

In relatively light winds, Burling continued to sail smoothly, extending the Kiwis' advantage to a healthy margin of one minute and 52 seconds over their rivals by the fifth gate. Simon van Velthooven, who won a bronze medal in cycling at the London Olympics, was aboard for Race 3.

The always-crafty Kiwis are using a “cyclor” grinding system.

Fellow Aussie John Bertrand, who beat Dennis Conner in 1983 to end the New York Yacht Club's 132-year America's Cup winning streak, said Spithill "is confident in that space". “I thought we were faster than yesterday but unfortunately its just not enough.

Oracle made an unforced error when its 50-foot catamaran came off its foils early on the downwind second leg.

In Race 4, the Kiwis held a slim lead at the first mark and simply sped away.
