Buff's all purpose AC match-race report!

I've been wondering how Buff could manage to report on each and every one of the America's Cup races when he's being hammered by the "upwind foiling" rule of his drinking game, but then all became clear when he accidentally emailed me the following:

G'day all! Buff Staysail here! Buff by name and Buff by nature!

Wow! What a day of racing we have had! Who could have predicted that!

[Oracle USA / Team NZ] sure are on a roll! Who can stop them now??

It was a tense pre-start, but you can't fault [Jimmy Spithill / Dean Barker] for his tactics and in the drag race for the first mark it's become inevitable that [Oracle USA / Team NZ] will round ahead!!

Downwind there were few over-taking opportunities as they both showed how they've perfected those foil to foil gybes, while upwind there was signs that [Oracle USA / Team NZ] have found another gear.

There was little that [Team NZ / Oracle USA] could do and in the end [Oracle USA / Team NZ] rocketed across the finishing lines to roars from their fans [paste time here] ahead of [Team NZ / Oracle USA].

Drama your name is the America's Cup!!!

This Buff Staysail, having a whale of a time and watching out for whales (geddit???!!) here in San Francisco Bay, over and out!!
