Welcome to live updates of the sixth day of racing in the 34th America's Cup. Well is doubtful we can get any more dramatic then yesterday's events after Team NZ very nearly tipped over but you've got to expect the unexpected with these boats so tune in for what should be another action-packed day.
We begin the day with race 9, which was postponed yesterday due to high winds. That will start at 8.10am with race 10 set for a 9.10am start, however high winds are again expected to put the second race of the day in doubt.
We're about 15 minutes away from the start of race 9. Another huge day in San Fran, if they race at all that is.
Team NZ will need an Oracle mistake to get back into this. A big improvement from Oracle upwind then we saw last week.
Lead now out to 345m. Oracle in control of this one.
Oracle extend their lead further again. They are cruising upwind. A huge moment in this regatta.
Lead still at the 300m+ mark.
Oracle tack once again and it's another clean move. They have been faultless so far today.
These conditions seems to help Oracle, but they've also made some changes to the boat and crew which have worked.
The lead was 18 seconds at mark two. Looks like it could be double that around mark 3.
Oracle sail into move breeze which could increase the lead further.
Oracle get ready to round mark 3.
Oracle Team USA lead doubled at mark 3. So there we go about thinking Team NZ dominate the upwind leg....
Oracle lead now at 711m. A complete performance by Oracle. Yesterday Team NZ handed them a point with a mistake. Today they have certainly earned the win. The start was vital.
Not all bad news for Team NZ fans. They have port advantage in race 10.
Oracle gybe again and yet again it's a very clean gybe.
They are in great form today as they eye mark 4
