There is just no stopping James Spithill's BMW Oracle Racing crew today. Counting the victory in the final race on Day 2, they now have a massive total of 5 successive race wins, after 14 of the now 16 scheduled races!

Something of an A and B fleet situation has developed throughout the racing, with the four AC team boats and Holmatro clearly in a league of their own. Alinghi has slipped down towards the bottom of the top five in race results today, so on overall points TeamOrigin are just four points behind them, with Holmatro a further three points adrift.

BMW Oracle Racing Cammas are back racing - and have scored two second places to Spithill's victories in the last two races. Both the BMW Oracle Racing team boats are doing their best to claw up to their three main rivals (Alinghi, TeamOrigin and Holmatro) to get on the overall iShares Cup podium at Cowes. The final race today will score double points.
