Team J.P.Morgan-BenAinslieRacing leads in the America's Cup World Series fleet racing with 63 points through Saturday's racing on San Francisco Bay

ORACLE TEAM USA SPITHILL shows great resiliency, wins match racing championship / America’s Cup: "The veteran crew, led by skipper Jimmy Spithill, overcame a spectacular capsize in Fleet Race 5 and later won the Match Racing Championship of the event sailed on San Francisco Bay. The U.S. Coast Guard estimated the spectator fleet at 1,000 vessels, while tens of thousands of people lined the shore. ORACLE TEAM USA SPITHILL beat Emirates Team New Zealand (Dean Barker) by 18 seconds in a race that was decided on the start line. With less than 10 seconds to the start, Spithill dove to leeward of Barker and luffed his New Zealand opponent so hard that Barker wound up tacking to port to avoid a penalty. Spithill sped onto the racecourse as Barker was circling around to start and led by 31 seconds at the first reach mark."

Earlier, Oracle Team USA Spithill had qualified for the finals of the match competition by defeating Artemis Team White. . . "
