America's Cup World Series Racing LIVE from Naples [streaming video]

ABOVE: April 12 at 8 am EDT (UTC 12:00) Day 2 Live Racing from Naples - Multi Camera Experience - Match Racing (Flights 1-3); Two Fleet Races

The AC World Series -- Naples opened in spectacular fashion on Wednesday as strong winds and big waves created thrilling racing conditions.

It will be a late night for their shore crew. Emirates Team NZ and ORACLE Racing Spithill sit on top in a tie for first after today's 2 Fleet Races.
