Oracle have called for the postponement card and is has been granted.
A tactical ploy from Oracle, perhaps, after getting so thoroughly dominated in race five.
Very disappointing for Team New Zealand, and the fans, but that is well within their rights.
Within their rights, maybe, but what kind of message does that send to Barker and co?
Well, then. At the end of the third day of racing, Team New Zealand have four points and Oracle are on minus-one.
When racing resumes on Friday morning, Team NZ will need five wins and Oracle still require 10.
Playing their postponement card is a dangerous ploy from Oracle. If they suffer any real mechanical damage on a subsequent day they no longer have this to fall back on.
Team NZ now heading back to base. A great day's work for them: a dominating victory in race five and then a psychological boost, as if they needed one, by Oracle pulling out of race six.
Definitely an anticlimax, especially given the Kiwis' command in race five, but Oracle may be postponing the inevitable.
Race six will now be at 8.10am on Friday NZT, with race seven following later in the morning.
He was indeed. No doubt the extra bit of rest will do him some good.
Confirmation from Dana in San Francisco. No structural problems for Oracle, except for maybe some damaged pride.
Just to convert those times for you guys, race six on Friday morning at 8.15am, with race seven going on hour later.
And thanks for joining me everyone. Another good day for Team New Zealand - will it be more of the same on Friday?
