America’s Cup Scoreboard – September 16, 2013
Published on September 16th, 2013
After an off day today, defender Oracle Team USA and Emirates Team New Zealand return to San Francisco Bay on Tuesday for races 11 and 12. The Kiwis need just two more wins to take the Cup, but the weather forecast indicates Mother Nature could impact the competition.
The wind is expected to start out in the 15-20 knot range, building to the 20-25 knots with possible higher gusts to 28 knots. The current is a strong ebb, which lowers the 23 knot wind limit by over 2.5 knots for each race.
Ten Completed Races – First team to 9 Points Wins
Emirates Team New Zealand: 7
Oracle Team USA: 1*
* Began series with -2 points due to International Jury penalty from AC World Series.
