Good morning and welcome to nzherald.co.nz's live coverage of the 34th America's Cup in San Francisco.
Emirates Team New Zealand need only one win to reclaim the Auld Mug, while Oracle Team USA require six victories to retain the trophy.
But both boats may be prevented from adding to their tally today. The fickle weather, which has seen the series stretch into a third week, is again not coming to the party.
I hope you're in luck, Hussain, but it doesn't look very good at the moment.
Well, that's good news the boats have been released from their moorings. Race director Iain Murray said the best case scenario saw one of the scheduled two races squeezed in. Looks like they're aiming for a 9.15am start.
Might be a bit of a wait, Mike. We'll keep you updated with any change but, at this stage, it appears they are trying to start the first (and possibly only) race in 80 minutes.
Yesterday was indeed a disappointing day, with the Cup being denied first by the clock and then by Oracle. Hopefully the weather improves and Team NZ can indeed bounce back.
So that's official: only one race which will hopefully start at 9.15am NZT. And the cut-off for racing is 9.40am.
It has indeed been frustrating, Bev. Hopefully reading about the weather for an-hour-and-a-half will prove more exciting.
Plenty of time for a bit of reminiscing on YouTube at the moment.
Probably in need of a good wash as well.
That sounds like my kind of yachting.
Money truly can buy you anything.
Perhaps we could just have an hour-long interview with Jimmy to fill in the time?
The rain isn't the problem, it's the wind and the direction it's coming from. At the moment it's a southerly, which is very unusual for San Francisco, and it's unstable which makes it virtually impossible to set a course. They need the wind direction to move around to the west a little more so they can set a fair course. Organisers are optimistic of staging one race today. Let's hope so
Regatta director Iain Murray: "We may get one race in. We probably won't get two in."
Barker: "The guys are really positive. It's quite an unusual day with the wind. It could be quite a volatile day."
Barker: "[The fans] are great, we're just so thankful for all the support we've had while we've been here, we'd just like to thank them in the appropriate way. So we hope we can put together a good performance today."
Barker on tactics: "With this big front sitting off the coast, it's bringing all this rain in. That rain is going to have an effect on the breeze. It's hard to predict what will happen. We will have to wait and see what we get."
That was Team NZ skipper Dean Barker being interviewed before the boats were allowed to leave their moorings.
Looks like the start time has been bumped up to 9am NZT. That's a good sign.
So a projected 9am start time allows 40 minutes in which to get the race underway before the cut-off for the day. So plenty of time to at least start the race.
