I can read that Oracle have to have 11 victorys and NZ 9 to win the cup. But it is also said that it is best out of 17 that will win the cup.

If Oracle wins 10 races there is only 7 left for NZ... Do we have a winner then?
If NZ winns 8 races there is only 9 races and 7 points left for Oracle... Do we have a winner then?

Surely that is not fair to NZ as they have extra costs to keep their boat and team together for the extra races. Then again I suppose that is the rules.
