America’s Cup - Emirates Team New Zealand pulls off    
Thu, 19 Sep 2013

Emirates Team New Zealand pulled off a great last leg in race 11 of the America’s Cup match, fighting off determined Oracle attacks both up and downwind to finish 15 seconds ahead.

The wind and strong ebb tide conspired to postpone race 12 until tomorrow. With the race about to start and the yachts well engaged in pre-start manoeuvres, officials called a halt because the wind exceeded the 20-knot limit mandated by the three-knot ebb tide.


The boats seemed oblivious to the call and completed the pre-start and raced to the first mark.
