The 34th America’s Cup began on September 7 and was supposed to conclude no later than September 23. But like so many things about this edition, it hasn’t gone as planned.

Now on September 24, it is all tied up with only one race remaining.  That final race is scheduled for September 25 – a winner-take-all contest for the Auld Mug.

If defender Oracle Team USA were to win, it will be a historic comeback from being down 8 to 1.

If challenger Emirates Team New Zealand were to win, the 19 race series will be among the most memorable ever.

Either way, this edition will certainly be known as the longest ever. The previous record was 18 days.  If completed on September 25, it will be on Day 19.
