NEWPORT, R.I.—Top international sailors are in Newport as racing begins in theAmerica s Cup World Series.


Highlights Day 1 - ACWS Newport - It was a frenetic opening day of racing at the AC World Series in Newport, the sixth and final stop on the global international circuit. In glorious conditions on Thursday afternoon, the overall series leader, ORACLE TEAM USA's Jimmy Spithill, extended his lead, while his nearest rival, Dean Barker, saw his season championship hopes diminish with a dramatic and unexpected capsize. Spithill had roaring start in the opening fleet race, powering off the starting line in light breezes to lead from start to finish, giving the American team top seeding in the match racing quarterfinals, which started immediately afterward. Pushed to the limit in the match racing, the team responded to advance to the semi finals.
