America's Cup World Series San Francisco - Tough on the Bay    
Sat, 25 Aug 2012

America's Cup World Series San Francisco. Day 3 was a stunning day for racing out on the San Francisco Bay, with 15- 20 knots of breeze and sunny skies.

The afternoon started with the two remaining Match Racing quarter-finals being sailed. They were won by Emirates Team New Zealand and Oracle Team USA – Coutts respectively.

Terry Hutchinson (USA) and the crew on Artemis Racing – White will now line up against Oracle Team USA Coutts on Saturday afternoon in the Match Racing semi-finals.

Two fleet races followed and the competition was intense. An issue with the code zero halyard on Artemis Racing – White in the first race lost the team valuable places, to finish sixth while Artemis Racing – Red finished eighth. In the second race, Artemis Racing – Red was over early at the start but fought their way through the fleet only to incur a boundary penalty on the penultimate leg.

'It was a tough day, but you take the good with the bad. As easy as you go up (the leaderboard), you can go down and we’ve seen that with all the teams,' said Hutchinson.

'We need to get used to the tight racing and boundaries,' said helmsman Santiago Lange. 'We were weak on that. It's a new system for me. It was a pity as it was a good opportunity to for us to catch up.'

Racing continues tomorrow through Sunday.
