LIVE video from Naples: America's Cup World Series

America's Cup World Series Naples - Day 4: Live Racing from Naples - Multi Camera Experience - Match Racing (Semi-Finals, Final); Two Fleet Races; Awarding of Match Racing Championship, Naples LIVE at 8 AM EDT (12:00 UTC) Saturday, April 14

News Day 3 - AC World Series Naples - Naples offered a new challenge to the nine crews competing in the America's Cup World Series on Friday as light, shifty offshore winds battled an onshore swell, resulting in a race course where gains and losses were often measured in the hundreds of yards. ORACLE Racing Spithill had the best day across the two fleet races, posting two second-place finishes. In contrast, each race winner (Energy Team, Emirates Team New Zealand) also carried a seventh place score on the day. As a result, Jimmy Spithill's American team gained four points on the leading Kiwis, nearly cutting their lead in half over the course of the day.
