Race 14 postponed to Sunday / America’s Cup: "Race 14 of the 34th America’s Cup was postponed today due to unsettled winds on San Francisco Bay. The race was officially postponed at 2:40 pm PT, the latest possible time to start a race. The wind was strong enough to race, but the direction was too far south from the desired direction of 230 degrees, just west of southwest."


Emirates Team New Zealand came within one nautical mile of winning the 34th America's Cup Friday, but then fell afoul of the 40-minute time limit. When Race 13 was re-sailed, the Kiwis were thwarted by a penalty and good speed from defender ORACLE TEAM USA who live to fight another day.
