America's Cup Race 3 to ETNZ

Race 3 and saw another close faught race with Oracle Team USA leading from the first mark but then finally Emirates Team New Zealand won the tacking duel to hold right-of-way coming off the left hand course boundary on port tack and because the crew was within three lengths had rights. That forced Oracle to tack to leeward. Once in control, ETNZ opened a lead that Oracle couldn’t overcome, winning by 28 seconds to go 3 - 0 up.
