TVNZ streaming America's Cup races live

Good news for New Zealand sailing fans: TVNZ is now streaming the AC45 world series matches live. Check out the sailing news page of their website to be directed to the links. Replays can be accessed by clicking through their OnDemand links, but the price paid is having to endure a Microsoft ad before getting into the actual footage. Access to the full replays on YouTube is once again delayed for viewers from NZ, but hopefully will be available in a week or so.

Unfortunately, coverage of the San Diego races has been a bit of a debacle. A lack of communication regarding the course, time of live streams, and delays in the posting of full replays have left a fans with a sour taste in their mouths. I am personally annoyed that the full replays for Port Cities Challenge that kicks off the event are not available. Let us hope that the organisers are learning valuable lessons so they don't make these mistakes again.
