Ahead of the America's Cup World Series, Artemis Racing and Emirates Team NZ continued their practice racing off San Francisco ahead of the start of the America's Cup World Series.

Emirates Team NZ and Artemis Racing tuned in to the San Francisco sea breeze again on Sunday. The breeze was up again – top gust for the afternoon was 27 knots – and was always in the early 20s.

Again the Emirates sailing crew returned to base unscathed and satisfied with the progress made during the afternoon, but declared they still had a lot of work to do to be confident against teams that had been sailing in San Francisco conditions for much longer than them.

Tomorrow is a day off. Official practice will be on Tuesday and racing starts on for some teams on Wednesday. Emirates Team New Zealand’s regatta starts on Thursday.

Top international photographer, Gilles Martin-Raget was on hand to capture the action, along with Jeremy Leonard of Surf City Racing, who shot and compiled this video of Artemis Racing and Emirates Team NZ streaking down the San Francisco City Front.
