The America's Cup will stay in San Francisco.
Oracle won the final race today. Emirates Team New Zealand started well and led around the first two marks. Oracle found more speed on the beat, took the lead and held on to the finish.
It has been a long regatta - 19 races over 2 1/2 weeks. New Zealand started the regatta well, and was dealt some cruel blows by the weather.
Twice racing was stopped when upper wind limits were reached when NZL5 was in a strong position.
Then when NZL5 was leading Oracle by 1500 metres, the race was called off because to time limit for the race had been exceeded.
That’s history now. The regatta is over. Oracle won and Emirates Team New Zealand fought an epic battle.
