SAILING: Alinghi one race away from sweeping Oracle BMW in Louis Vuitton Cup semis.: Alinghi leads US tech billionaire Larry Ellison's Oracle BMW Racing 3-0, one win away from sweeping into the Cup final. In the other semifinal, US telecom billionaire Craig McCaw's OneWorld regained its lead over Prada, 2-1. Sailing quirk 1: In this first-to-four series, OneWorld needs to win five, thanks to a one-point penalty for employing designers who had access to other team's boat designs. Sailing quirk 2: Whoever wins the OneWorld v Prada semi-final needs to beat the loser of the Alinghi v Oracle semi-final before getting into the final (it's called a repechage).
