Speed Maps: Speed-Over-Ground Leg-by-Leg
Colors: Blue is USA, Red is NZL.  Darker colors are slowest, lighter colors are fastest.

Emirates Team New Zealand gained 2 seconds on this leg.

Emirates Team New Zealand began this leg with the lead by seven seconds.  Note on this leg the number of tacks for ETNZ (10) and Oracle (7).  ETNZ's second tack, at upper right, is where NZL on starboard did not cross USA.  Instead NZL tacked ahead to leeward on port.  They sailed parallel courses, and had to tack at the boundary soon after, but NZL could not live on USA's hip and had to tack away to the boundary again.  Additionally, compare the difference course angles at the top of the leg.  ENTZ trailed Oracle by 56 seconds around Mark 3.  Also: See Video and photo sequence at CupExperience

Emirates Team New Zealand gained 8 seconds on this leg. See Gains/Leads Chart

The maps plotted above color the tracks of each yacht according to the relative speed of the yacht at each point on the course as compared to all other data points on the same leg.  The points are classified by color based on five quantile groups.  Positions of the marks are approximated for illustration purposes.
