America's Cup racing postponed again due to high winds

America's Cup racing postponed again due to high winds

The Kiwis won two of three races against Ainslie's Land Rover BAR on Bermuda's Great Sound on Thursday to win the series 5-2 and advance to face the victor of the series between Sweden's Artemis Racing and SoftBank Team Japan.

Britain, meanwhile, still hasn't bounced back from its loss in 1851 to the schooner America.

The Japanese team, skippered by Dean Barker, led the Swedish side 3-1 at one point but lost steam in the best-of-nine challenger series on Bermuda's Great Sound.

But the physical demands of racing the power-hungry 50-foot America's Cup Class foiling catamarans, which have a crew of six, requires a new mix of strength, speed and stamina.

Artemis Racing of Sweden has clinched a spot in the America's Cup challenger finals by beating SoftBank Team Japan for the fourth straight race. Barker was sacked by Emirates Team New Zealand in the aftermath of blowing an 8-1 lead to Oracle Team USA in the 2013 America's Cup match.

The victor of the final will then take on the defending champs, Oracle Team USA, for the championship. "Full credit to them".

Burling said the capsize will be in the back of his mind for a long time.

While it was "too early to say" whether SoftBank Team Japan would be back for another shot at the cup, Barker said he hoped they had a future given the fan base they have built up in both Japan and New Zealand, where numerous team are from.

"As a group of New Zealanders, we are incredibly resilient", Burling said.

Helmsman Peter Burling said he, skipper and wing trimmer Glenn Ashby and Simon van Velthooven remained in the boat while Andy Maloney, Blair Tuke and Josh Junior were thrown into the water.

The Kiwis then saluted the British crew.

Devoid of their captain, the Swedes gave up the ghost in Bermuda's Great Sound and retired, allowing the Kiwis to freely sail to victory. They'll have to wait at least two more years to try again. We have improved the boat and improved the performance, but we still have more to come, and we know we can get faster.

Ben Ainslie, Land Rover BAR Skipper and Team Principal, said: Ben Ainslie, Skipper and Team Principal: "We are constantly developing".

"It's pretty hard, when any person goes overboard, to get these boats around the track, so we're going to have a bit of a look at it to see what we'd do differently and who would go into what position if I go overboard next time".

"These boats are turning quite quickly and in an effort to get crew up quite quickly out of the tack, we sprint across". He also has a silver medal.

He said if he had not slipped they would have won the race and be in the lead.

Team Japan attracted a penalty in the day's first race after crossing the start line a fraction too soon and could not bridge the gap.
