America's Cup Races 6 and 7 Thursday (videos)


America's Cup Race 5 highlights video


Challenger Emirates Team New Zealand won Race 5 of the 34th America's Cup convincingly on Tuesday, and then Defender ORACLE TEAM USA used its one and only "postponement card" to try and put a halt to the Kiwi's winning ways. Emirates Team New Zealand leads the series 4-0. The winner of the 34th America's Cup will be the first team to win 9 points. For the Kiwis that means five additional race wins and for ORACLE TEAM USA it means 10, due to a penalty imposed by the International Jury. Both teams are allowed one postponement card and may use it only to postpone a day's second race, regardless of the reason. ORACLE TEAM USA skipper Jimmy Spithill said it was a collective decision by the onboard crew to request Race 6 is postponed until Thursday. America's Cup Racing resumes on Thursday with Races 6 and 7, scheduled for 1:15 pm PT and 2:15 pm PT (US).

The winner of the 34th America’s Cup will be the first team to win 9 points. For the Kiwis that means five additional race wins and for ORACLE TEAM USA it means 10, due to a penalty imposed by the International Jury."

America's Cup: New Zealand wins Race 5
San Jose Mercury News
SAN FRANCISCO -- Oracle Team USA's meltdown on the America's Cup race course after taking a strong lead over Emirates Team New Zealand on Tuesday was so surprising and demoralizing that the team pulled out of the second race to "regroup.".

John Crowd - johncrowd.com: Team USA calls time out in the America's Cup: (America's cup analysis) " . . . it was painfully obvious that besides the tacking error of the American team, the Oracle Team USA boat is slower upwind than Emirates Team New Zealand. I doubt if sufficient changes can be made to turn it around for Larry Ellison's team, however, they should be able to be competitive. Team NZ only needs 5 more wins to win the Cup whereas Team USA needs 10 wins. Odds would favor the Kiwis winning at least every other race from hereon out. Racing continues Thursday."
