35th America's Cup Challenger Finals Round-Up June 10th

Jun 10, 2017: Incredibly close racing between Artemis Racing and Emirates Team New Zealand on the first day of the Louis Vuitton America's Cup Challenger Playoffs Final in Bermuda. Advantage goes to the Kiwis, but if skipper Nathan Outteridge hadn't gone for a swim in the final race the outcome could have been very different.

Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger Playoffs, Saturday June 10, 2017: Man overboard! Nathan Outteridge, the skipper of Artemis Racing, slid off the back of the Swedish challenger Artemis Racing at a critical point in the third race of the day, handing the lead to Peter Burling’s Emirates Team New Zealand squad on day one of the finals.
9th June: 35th America's Cup Race Round-Up

Jun 9, 2017: There was only one race on the final day of the Louis Vuitton America's Cup Challenger Playoffs Semi-finals with Artemis Racing taking the win over SoftBank Team Japan. The two teams were so evenly matched that it made for a thrilling series, but it means the end of the road for SoftBank Team Japan. The Swedes will now advance to face Emirates Team New Zealand in the Louis Vuitton America's Cup Challenger Playoffs Semi-finals.
