News: Defender, Challenger thrilling thousands with close-quarter racing on the Bay - YouTube: "Tens of thousands of race fans flocked to the shores of San Francisco Bay for the second day in a row and were treated to some of the most compelling America's Cup racing in the 162-year history of the event. A crowd of some 45,000 people took in yesterday's racing from the America's Cup Park, at Piers 27/29, and America's Cup Village, at Marina Green. Thousands more lined other vantage points around the bay, and many of them returned today to see even more thrilling action, all spurred on by the wild AC72, the flying, foiling machine that can sail at speeds in excess of 50 miles per hour. Defender ORACLE TEAM USA and challenger Emirates Team New Zealand split the two races. The Kiwis won the first by 28 seconds, overcoming a penalty and passing the defender in an exhausting tacking duel on the upwind leg. ORACLE TEAM USA rebounded to win the second race by a scant 8 seconds. The Kiwis lead the series 3-0, but the win allowed ORACLE TEAM USA to put a halt to the Kiwis' winning streak . . ."

Oracle Team USA wins Race 4 of America's Cup - ESPN: "It was the first victory of the regatta for Oracle, which still has a long way to go to keep the oldest trophy in international sports. Owned by software billionaire Larry Ellison of Oracle Corp., Oracle Team USA was docked two points by an international jury in the biggest cheating scandal in the regatta's 162-year history. That meant the Americans started at minus-2. Oracle needs to win 10 more races to keep the silver trophy."
