Day 2 of the iShares Cup saw USA team, Tommy Hilfiger, recover from a near capsize in spectacular form in gusty conditions in the bay of Hyères (France).

America's Cup defenders Alinghi have found their Extreme 40 groove and rise to the top of the iShares Cup leaderboard. And defending iShares Cup champions on TEAM ORIGIN are back on form and are just 8 points behind Alinghi going into the final day of racing Sunday, 15 June.

Images below are from the Extreme 40 excitement on Day 1 and 2 of the iShares Cup in France.
