America's Cup - Strong winds halt racing on day 7

In the 34th America's Cup, all racing scheduled for day seven has been postponed until tomorrow, Wednesday, September 18th.

Races 11 and 12 were postponed due to strong winds in excess of the prescribed limit. Today’s wind limit of 20.1 knots was especially low because of a strong ebb (outgoing) tide on San Francisco Bay. The ebb tide flows against the prevailing wind direction and creates a challenging sea state for the AC72 catamarans. At the time of postponement (1:31 pm PT), the wind was blowing 25 knots.

The two races are rescheduled to tomorrow, at 1:15 pm and 2:15 pm PT, respectively.

Challenger Emirates Team New Zealand leads defender Oracle Team USA 7-1. The winner of the 34th America’s Cup will be the first team to score nine points. For the Kiwis that means two additional race wins and for Oracle Team USA it means eight. Oracle Team USA’s first two victories don’t count towards its scoreline due to a penalty imposed by the International Jury.
