34th America's Cup Day 7 racing postponed due to strong winds

Strong winds have postponed racing scheduled for Day 7 of the 34th America's Cup in San Francisco, California.

Races 11 and 12 were set to take place on 17 September, but the wind limit that can delay racing on the AC72 catamarans was 'extremely low' according to organisers at only 20.1 knots due to strong ebb tide on San Francisco Bay. The ebb tide flows against the prevailing wind, causing a challenging sea state for the AC72 yachts. The wind had gained strength up to 25 knots at the time postponement was called.

Challenger Emirates Team New Zealand is currently in the lead over Defender Oracle Team USA with a score of 7 to 1. The first team to reach nine points will win the America's Cup. The two races are now rescheduled for today, 18 September, and will take place at 1:15 and 2:15pm Pacific Time. Today might be the day that the winner is determined if the Defender is not able to hold off the Challenger. To catch the action, racing can be viewed live on America's Cup YouTube channel.
