    America's Cup Finals- Day 1- New Zealand Wins!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     konacraig photographed the America's Cup Finals in San Francisco California, on September 7, where New Zealand won the first two races. 'It was an exciting race. The result was unexpected since the Oracle boat had done so well in the trial races. New Zealand got a great start and through out race had a better boat,' he said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    Day 1 of the America's Cup was a winning day for the New Zealand team. I was fortunate to be on the water in beautiful San Fransisco Bay. The weather was in the high 80's. A clear sky and large crowds. The New Zealand team took a 2-0 lead, winning both races in a convincing manner.today.

    The boats look like they can fly as they sped past my position on the water. The approaching boats sound like freight trains as they passed by. What beautiful machines to watch.
