America's Cup- Emirates Team NZ update for Day 7

America’s Cup Day 7 San Francisco. Emirates Team NZ returns from a training session after the racing was cancelled for the day

The wind won the day at San Francisco when Day 7 racing of 34th America's Cup was postponed until tomorrow. With an ebb tide of a strong 2.7 knots the wind limit at the start time was 20.3 knots.

The ebb tide flows against the wind direction and creates a challenging sea state for the AC72s.

The wind continued to build as it does at this time of the year in San Francisco and the race committee pulled the plug at 1.31pm when the wind strength was a consistent 25 knots.As the AC72 returned to base gusts of 32 knots were experienced.

Tomorrow, wind conditions will start to moderate and so will the strength of the tide.

Races 11 and 12 are rescheduled to tomorrow, at 1:15 pm and 2:15 pm San Francisco time.

Emirates Team New Zealand leads Oracle 7-1. The winner of the 34th America’s Cup will be the first team to score nine points.
