Oracle closes in on Team New Zealand

10:22 am on 14 April 2012

The two second-placings achieved in patchy wind conditions helped Oracle Racing Spithill to almost halve the deficit it faced at the end of day two of the American's World Cup Series in Naples.

The Spithill crew holds second, 5 points behind Team New Zealand led by Dean Barker, with six of nine scheduled fleet races completed.

Tomorro's Fleet Race 9 Finale will award significant points and leaves the Naples championship within the grasp of nearly every crew in the fleet.
