New Zealand book America's Cup rematch with USA


In a seventh race against the Swedes, initially delayed by light winds, Peter Burling dominated his arch rival Nathan Outteridge in the start box, heading off to round mark one in the lead for the first time in the series final.

How can I watch it?

On Tuesday, Emirates Team New Zealand capsized at the start of a semifinal race, throwing three crewmen into the water and causing significant damage.

How does it all work?

New Zealand lead Sweden 4-2 in the first-to-five series, with the victor going on to challenge America's Cup holders Oracle Team USA.

Glenn Ashby, the Team New Zealand skipper and wing trimmer, is looking forward to having another crack at Oracle after the Kiwis blew what seemed an impregnable 8-1 lead against the American defender at the 34th Americas Cup in San Francisco in 2013.

Artemis Racing skipper Nathan Outteridge, an Australian who also has won Olympic gold and silver medals, will have to rally again to keep his syndicate alive.

The pair are on board Sweden's Artemis Racing, which slipped behind 4-2 against Team New Zealand in the best-of-nine Challenger Play-off final in Bermuda.

She admitted to police that she went back into the house, smoked marijuana and fell asleep for several hours , KTVT reports. A bond had not been set and it wasn't immediately clear whether she retained an attorney, NBC Dallas-Fort Worth reported .

New Zealand appeared to have the race in hand before a miscue at the final gate saw the boat slow dramatically as it came off its foils, allowing Sweden to close rapidly. The caveat is if one of these two teams had previously won the Qualifiers (first stage), the opposing team will begin this Match with a one point disadvantage (ie, minus 1), meaning they will need to win eight races while the advantaged team must win seven races.

Shortly after leaving its base for the race course Friday, SoftBank Team Japan hit something hard enough to jostle the crew.

Meanwhile, Team BDA demonstrated that they will be no pushovers, thriving in the non-foiling conditions to keep their bid to qualify for the final of the Red Bull Youth Americas Cup on track.

For Emirates Team New Zealand, who have been involved in the America's Cup for such a long period of time, to have that happen would have been a real tragedy. "It's going to be a really good race the next couple of days".

The New Zealanders dominated the race, winning by 56 seconds.

Although Artemis Racing put up a keen fight, the New Zealand crew consistently had the edge in pace and manoeuvrability, with Burling calmly driving his high-speed craft around Bermuda's Great Sound as his "cyclors" pedalled non-stop to provide the power needed to control the vast "cat".

"I think we definitely owe a few supporters a few beers or something like that", Burling said. But Tuke doesn't think that means Oracle have a faster boat, telling the Radio Sport Breakfast that Team New Zealand were probably quicker but just made costly errors in both defeats.
