ETNZ beat Ineos in first matchup. American Magic won second against Ineos.

Sadly i agree. And the hype makes it alot like professional wrestling.

yes, it's hard to go back to tv after you've gotten used to; watching when you want, hopping around the video, skipping the bits YOU think are boring and replaying the ones YOU think are interesting

As much as I struggle to watch the AC75s.It is totally amazing to see a 75footer foil.But as for the racing aspect completely boring to me.Much rather go to local pond and watch  iom racing or the unrestricted marblehead class. At least they can be matched racing.But this AC75 stuff is a fore gone conclusion (in most cases)win the start have won the race. Hope I am the only one that feels this way but cannot see it being a future major event.

Youtube is about 10 seconds behind, and the picture quality not as good as TV1. However with TV1 as soon as the race finishes you get adverts, and miss the race recap highlights, plus the interview with the skipper. So what I do now is watch the race start to finish on TV1, then flick to Youtube for the between race bits. I guess it depends if you prefer Lester/Robertson or Read/Outteridge as well.
