Tomorrow, Tuesday, is the first day in which one team may win the America's Cup. In case the trophy is awarded tomorrow the post racing program will change with a public prizegiving ceremony followed by press conferences with both teams.

The official weather forecast, at this stage is not promising with the wind starting out in the 15-20 knot range and building to the 20-25 knots with possible higher gusts to 28 knots. Current is a strong ebb, which lowers the wind limit by over 2.5 knots for each race.

Beyond Tuesday, if Wednesday is needed it will be a race day. Thursday is also a race day too, and Friday is a reserve day that can only be used if some races are postponed but never to go ahead of schedule.
