AC World Series Naples - Day 1 for Emirates Team NZ + Video

'Energy Team and Emirates Team New Zealand, day one of the America’s Cup World Series regatta in Naples, Italy. 11/4/2012 - America’s Cup World Series, Naples, Day 1'    Chris Cameron/ETNZ

At the America’s Cup World Series Naples, Emirates Team New Zealand finished the first day of racing with a win and third in the two races sailed. Racing was called off for the day as the wind got up to a steady 22 knots with gusts and the seaway increasing, making conditions potentially dangerous.

Artemis capsized in the first race, damaging its wing and returned to base for repairs; after racing shore teams carefully checked each of the nine yachts for signs of hull damage.



Emirates Team New Zealand finished the day on equal points with Oracle Racing.

The first race was won by Oracle Racing Spithill, with Energy Team (France) second and Emirates Team New Zealand third.

Having spent little time in the AC45 since the last ACWS regatta was raced at San Diego in November Barker said before leaving the dock that it might take a little time to settle in to fleet racing.

His prediction looked like coming true in the first race when, after rounding the first mark in third place, they were overtaken and were in seventh place at the third mark. Then the trademark comeback began and Barker and crew of Winston Macfarlane, James Dagg, Ray Davies and Glenn Ashby stated picking off the opposition to finish third.

In the process, Macfarlane was slammed in to the forward beam and suffered severe bruising to his upper legs and will be rested for a couple of days.

If the first race belonged to Oracle Racing Spithill, race two belonged to Barker and Emirates Team New Zealand. With Jeremy Lomas on board, they started well, rounding the first mark in second place. They overtook Spithill on leg 2 and then sailed away leading around every subsequent mark. Korea was second 1m 21s adrift and Oracle Racing Spithill third.
