America's Cup LIVE from Naples (streaming video)

Our coverage begins on Sunday April 15, at 8:30 am EDT (12:30 UTC) (1430 CEST); In France and Monaco, live coverage is provided by Canal+ Sport, television and website. In New Zealand, live coverage is provided by TVNZ, television or website. Please check with each provider for details.

Day 4 (Saturday) racing was cancelled due to weather conditions. Heavy seas pounding into the breakwaters along the Naples sea front on Saturday morning, along with a forecast for winds that could exceed 30 knots, meant racing was suspended on Saturday. The match race semi finals and finals will now be sailed on Sunday. Fleet races seven and eight have been abandoned and won't be sailed, shortening the Fleet Racing Championship to seven races.
Day 3 highlights here.
