China Team, the official challenger of the 34th America’s Cup World Series, has achieved its best result yet in history in today’s first fleet race. China Team has defeated six strong teams from U.S., France, Italy, Sweden and etc., and become the fifth to finished race.

The weather today in San Francisco bay is sunny and breezy. The America’s Cup has started its third day of racing after the 'Blue Angle' fleet week show. After the starting signal of the first fleet week, the eleven boats boosted up to the first mark. After Emirate Team USA had secured the first place after the swift turn in the first mark, Oracle Team USA Spithill pushed their boat to the limit aiming to minimize the distance with Emirate Team New Zealand. However, when you make a mistake and you pay for it. Oracle Team USA Spithill made a mistake and flipped over in the first turn. China Team grabbed the chance and secured its good position and finished the match ranking the fifth, which is the best result yet in the America’s Cup World Series.



The Chinese sailor Ying Kit Cheng has accepted the interview from the America’s Cup after the race today. He stated that it is quite normal to see capsizes in the America’s Cup, and that is the charm of the regatta. Every sailor has to prepare for change and challenge during the race. Luckily, China Team has successfully grasped the opportunity and finished the race under pressure.

The America’s Cup World Series San Francisco October will come to the final tomorrow (7th Oct). Tonight, whole China Team would have a simple celebration for the good result achieve today and prepare for the final race tomorrow. Let’s wish China Team would scale new height in the following race tomorrow.

Blue skies, sunshine, 23 deg C, clean air, and the whole place looks as if has put on a party frock and got lit up. Wonderful.
