Emirates Team New Zealand leads over Oracle Racing USA on the 2nd leg of the first race of the America’s Cup 34. 7/9/2013 Chris Cameron/ETNZ© http://www.chriscameron.co.nz
The 'September Showdown' for the 34th America's Cup continues at 1315 PST time today Sunday 9th of September.

Oracle Team USA began its defense of the 34th America’s Cup yesterday, losing two races against the red hot challenger, Emirates Team New Zealand on San Francisco Bay.

Races 3 and 4 in the first to 9 win series will be sailed today, wind limits permitting.

Race 3 begins at 1:15 pm PT, with race 4 following at 2:15 pm PT.

The Live Broadcast with commentary by Olympic Gold Medallist and Artemis AC72 helmsman Nathan Outteridge, and top international sailor, Ken Read (USA), will run from 1:00 -3:00 pm PT. That is 9pm GMT, 10pm in France & Spain etc, 6am Sydney time, 8am New Zealand time.

Live racing and replays can also be viewed here (subject to territorial restrictions), that is for certain countries including the USA and New Zealand where it is geo-blocked . Please advise of others, as you regrettably discover them. If you live in a blocked territory you can try various work-arounds, on of which is to download a piece of software Hotspot Shield, pay the $5 subscription for a month, set the territory to Australia, and you should receive the live coverage (when you run the test in Hotspot Shield you PC/laptop should show Australia - not your home country).

With Oracle USA going into the series starting with minus two, having been penalised because of the AC45 Kingpost affair then losing the two races by 36 and 52 seconds, you can bet the American team will come out with guns blazing today.

With a large Sail-World Team we will be working very hard to bring you dedicated America´s Cup newsletters on Monday and thru the series. Stay with the Sail-world team for all the live action, replays, analysis, images and interviews.



While you are waiting here is the replay of races 1 and 2

Rio 2016 - Sailors talk of Life at the Extreme on the Atlantic Ocean
Certainly the Volvo Ocean Race catchcry of Life at the Extreme is not a phrase associated with the Sailing Olympics. The 470 crews were suffering the mixed emotions of survival of an extreme test by nature, the cold, and for some elation at their placings, after Thursday's battle for survival. In conditions that looked more out of the Volvo Ocean Race, than an Olympic sailing regatta, crews battled 20kt plus winds and Atlantic Ocean rollers that towered up to four metres.
