LOUIS VUITTON CUP - RR5 - RACE 1, 28 July 2013 - YouTube: "Emirates Team New Zealand vs Luna Rossa Challenge" Sunday 3 pm EDT (US); 7 pm (1900) UTC/GMT

News: Another exciting week at the America's Cup both on and off the water: "Last weekend saw big crowds to enjoy the racing at the America's Cup Park and also at the America's Cup Village at Marina Green, where the atmosphere was brightened by the AC Open. And the San Francisco Symphony brought the best of Tchaikovsky to the America's Cup Pavilion. On the race course, the Kiwis survived a scare when equipment failure meant they sailed much of Sunday's race without a headsail. But the story of the week really belonged to Artemis Racing, who launched and sailed their second AC72 this week. Big Blue went into the water on Monday. On Wednesday the team was out for its first sail and wasted no time in getting the beautiful blue machine up on its foils. On the Louis Vuitton Cup Round Robin leaderboard, Emirates Team New Zealand has an unassailable lead, with 7 points. The Kiwis will race Luna Rossa one more time, on Sunday, before they are expected to announce their intentions...As top team in the Round Robins, they can choose to advance straight to the Final, or pick an opponent to race in the semis, starting on August 6. In the meantime, we'll have racing over the weekend and into next week as the Round Robin concludes."

Highlights from the first day's racing off Marblehead, featuring J/105s, J/70s, Rhodes 19s, Etchells, Megabytes, and more.
