The American syndicate BMW Oracle has beaten Team New Zealand in round robin two at the Louis Vuitton Trophy regatta off Dubai.

It was a close race until Team New Zealand lost control of their spinnaker on the last leg to lose by 25 seconds.

Oracle continues to dominate the event, while Team New Zealand is now just ahead of Italian syndicate Mascalzone Latino in second place in the standings.

Tomorrow is the last day of round robin 2 before the knockout stage.
