On day two of the America's Cup Finals, Oracle Team USA won Race 4 in an amazing display of boathandling. With the wind blowing 22 knots and each team’s AC72 seemingly on the verge of control, Oracle Team USA scored an 8-second victory.

Challenger Emirates Team New Zealand leads the series 3-0, however, due to a penalty imposed on the defender by the international jury. Oracle Team USA won’t get a point on the scoreboard until its third victory.

Tomorrow is an off day for the America’s Cup before racing resumes on Tuesday with Race 5 and 6, scheduled to start at 1:15 pm PT and 2:15 pm PT.
