ACWS Day 3: Live Racing from San Francisco

America's Cup World Series Day 3: Live Racing from San Francisco starts 5 pm EDT (GMT/UTC-4), UTC 2100, Saturday, August 25, 2012


News Story - August 24 / America’s Cup: "After placing 7th in the day’s first fleet race, ORACLE TEAM USA SPITHILL (Jimmy Spithill) cemented his lead in the fleet race standings with a come-from-behind win in the day’s second fleet race, the fourth fleet race of the series. Spithill was over the start line early, but the penalty hardly hurt. He jibed around the first reach mark and was in fourth by the leeward mark. Spithill moved up to third by the windward mark and second, behind Emirates Team New Zealand (Dean Barker) at the second leeward mark."

Fleet Race 3 Friday - ORACLE TEAM USA COUTTS crash into the Race Committee boat in the start. Russell and crew were not able to race as their AC45 full sustained damage.
