"We've said all along that we are learning all the time and although we won both races we got a lot wrong and made too many mistakes today". Jimmy Spithill's Oracle team now face an uphill battle to win the competition, where the trophy is earned by the team that wins seven races.
New Zealand helmsman Peter Burling, 26, won both races against defending USA champion Jimmy Spithill in an upset as the Kiwi team made a strong start in the first day of the first to seven competition.
Spithill thinks the splashdown was caused by a problem with one of the rudders.
Two races are scheduled on both days this weekend, beginning at 14:12 local time (1:12pm ET).
Oracle came in with a 10-race winning streak against Team New Zealand, including eight at the end of the 2013 regatta and two in the round-robins this year.
And then, saying he had a leak in the Kiwi camp, Spithill upstaged Burling when he said the Kiwis would pick Britain as their challenger semifinal opponent.
The French team is waiting to hear if Groupama will continue their sponsorship, which is expected within the month, after a good performance in the America's Cup despite coming to the competition late and with the smallest budget.

"It's a very, very competitive boat, guys have done a lot of work, a lot of upgrading on it and we feel we'll be competitive".
In light easterly winds, the New Zealand team's foils, which lift the boat out of the water at speed, appeared to be more efficient, consolidating the Kiwis' reputation as light wind specialists.
The always-crafty Kiwis are using a "cyclor" grinding system. "We feel with the resource we've got we can make changes that are going to improve the boat and give us more speed". They've built four stationary cycling stations into each hull to tap leg power instead of traditional arm power from the grinders to power the hydraulic systems that control the wing mainsail and the daggerboards.
"I think it just shows that you guys will fall for anything", Spithill chuckled.
Blair Tuke, a crewman on Emirates Team New Zealand, responded with a cartoon of a gassed-looking bald eagle failing to keep up with a trim kiwi speeding away on a bicycle. But its 50-foot catamaran came off its foils during a bad gybe and buried its bows in the water, allowing the Kiwis to speed back ahead and open a lead of about 300 yards.
