New Zealand Capsizes in America's Cup - All Hands Safe

New Zealand Capsizes in America's Cup - All Hands Safe”

The victor will challenge holders Oracle Team USA for the oldest trophy in worldwide sport in the Louis Vuitton America's Cup Match starting on June 17.

The New Zealand team held a 3-1 lead before Thursday's races, and secured a 5-2 overall victory to end Ainslie's dream of "bringing the America's Cup back to Britain".

Team New Zealand tried to adjust during the second race of the day when their yacht pitched out of the water and capsized - falling over its own wingsail. On Friday, Team Japan had the early lead but Outteridge outmaneuvered Dean Barker to take the lead after a bad tack by Team Japan on the third leg.

Artemis Racing of Sweden has clinched a spot in the America's Cup challenger finals by beating SoftBank Team Japan for the fourth straight race. "Ultimately we weren't able to catch up with the existing teams in time".

It raised the question: What would happen if Peter Burling fell off the Team New Zealand boat during a race? But in the final race of the day, Burling got the better start and barely looked back as he left Ainslie in his wake. He helped Oracle Team USA rally from an 8-1 deficit to win eight straight races against Team New Zealand in 2013 to retain the oldest trophy in global sports.

“We definitely didnt feel like we had it set up quite 100 per cent because the breeze was going up and down, we were kind of chasing it all day.

After Hamas decade, Gaza short on freedom, jobs, electricity
The spot is supposed to house the headquarters of Qatar's Gaza reconstruction mission and a residence for an envoy. They accuse Qatar of supporting armed groups - including Hamas - and their regional rival, Iran .

Turning his attention to the potential opponent in the Louis Vuitton America's Cup Challenger Playoffs Final, Burling admitted he does not have a preference between Artemis Racing or SoftBank Team Japan.

Luring athletes from other disciplines on board is not entirely new for the America's Cup.

Three more races are scheduled for Sunday. Land Rover BAR lost two points on the first day of racing when they had a problem with their wing, but managed to get a point back on Tuesday when New Zealand capsized.

The Brits tried to get back to the dock to replace the wing. After the Kiwis reached match point, Oracle won eight straight races to retain the oldest trophy in global sports.

The result takes Team New Zealand once step closer to a Cup Match with Team USA, with a ideal showing on Sunday - in the lighter breezes forecast for Bermuda - enough to send them through.

Emirates Team New Zealand successfully harnessed the power of rower Rob Waddell, who won gold in the single sculls in Sydney in 2000, as a grinder.
