Anyone caught any of the America's Cup yacht racing from San Francisco Bay with racing hydrofoil catamarans?

To win the America's Cup New Zealand has to win 9 races, the US has to win 11 races because of being penalized '2 points' for some form of rules violation.

NZ jumped out to a early lead in races and led 7-1 at one point and 8-3 at another. Through Sunday the US fought back to make it 8-7.
