America's Cup Races 11 & 12 did not happen today.
17/09/2013 - San Francisco (USA CA) - 34th America’s Cup - Day 7, ORACLE Team USA vs Emirates Team New Zealand - Racing postponed due to heavy winds - Regardless RC Boat ACEA / Photo Abner Kingman © http://photo.americascup.com
Race 11 in the first to 9 wins series was supposed to begin at 1:15 pm PT, with Race 10 following at 2:15 pm PT. (wind limits permitting)
But it did not permit.
As if Emirates Team New Zealand and Oracle Team USA didn’t deliver enough thrills and spills over the weekend, today the stakes are raised even higher: two more wins for Emirates Team New Zealand and the Kiwis win the America’s Cup for the third time (1995, 2000).
Oracle Team USA is pushing hard. The team has made a noticeable leap with its upwind boatspeed and tactics.
The problem today was going to be the wind, the forecast was for stronger winds combined with an ebbing tide.
But while we are waiting to find out... we have races 9& 10, 8,7,6, 5,4 & 3 replays
