America's Cup: Emirates Team NZ still one win shy of Cup win


'Emirates Team New Zealand and Oracle Team USA pass while practicing before race 12 on day eight of America’s Cup 34.. 18/9/2013'    Chris Cameron/ETNZ©

Day 9 of the 34th America;'s Cup was restricted to just another one-race day at San Francisco as wind and tide conspired against the race committee’s best endeavours to get the second race away.

They came close to succeeding. The boats were well into the two-minute start sequence when the plug was pulled for the third day in succession.

Emirates Team New Zealand started today one point away from taking the America’s Cup to New Zealand. The team ended the day in exactly the same position as it started it, but with a win in the one race sailed, Oracle put another point on the board.

The team lost race 12, the only race to be held today. Oracle gained another point and now trails New Zealand eight points to two. The first team to nine wins the America’s Cup.

Oracle won the start and led to the finish. The delta was 31s.
