America's Cup racing postponed again due to high winds”

Going into the last day of the Qualifiers last Saturday June 3 Emirates Team New Zealand were leading Defending Champion Oracle Team USA by 1 point with a head to head race between the two teams to play. New Zealand's 5-2 victory over the British crew led by Ben Ainslie means they progress to the America's Cup challenger play-offs this weekend when they will face either Sweden's Artemis Racing or SoftBank Team Japan.

Team New Zealand are left to assess the damage to the multi-million pound catamaran ahead of the remainder of the series, though a forecast for stronger wind could see racing cancelled, buying the Kiwis some extra recovery time.

SoftBank Team Japan hit something shortly after leaving its base for the race course.

As a result of the accident, the boat showed signs of damage from the high-speed impact with the waters of Bermuda's Great Sound, where winds were gusting near the maximum allowed for America's Cup racing.

"We gave it our best attempt and certainly, where this team has come from, particularly in the previous few months, is a huge credit to everyone in the team".

In the second race, a flawless Swedish performance handed them a 15-second victory, before Outteridge's third-race blunder put Team New Zealand on the ascendancy.

The Swedes retired due to the incident on the fifth of seven legs in race three, handing a 2-1 advantage to the Kiwis after the opening day of the challengers series final in Bermuda on Sunday.

Friday's race against the Japanese crew was tight, hinging on a tactical mistake by their skipper Dean Barker who was forced to a standstill by Outteridge when he tried to get past them in the middle of their head-to-head encounter.

The delay could benefit New Zealand, who spent all night repairing their catamaran after a spectacular capsizing during a race against Britain on Tuesday.

The Brits tried to get back to the dock to replace the wing.
