On Thursday Sept. 5th PST, both Emirates Team New Zealand and Oracle took the opportunity to get in a few more practice blasts across San Francisco bay.

Today, Friday September 6th, will be their official last day to test before the America's Cup final match races begin on Saturday. Both boats did uphill and downhill speed runs, with very little tacking or gybing. With clear skies and winds in the 20k range, the session was brief but, as usual, spectacular as the two boats took turns churning up the bay.
