It's hard to see either side wanting to race today because of the difficult conditions. With so much at stake, both teams will want stable conditions
We talk about this regatta bordering on farce, it's nothing compared to the 1988 edition when New Zealand's 'big boat' was destroyed by Dennis Conner's cat.
We are 10 minutes away from the cutoff for racing today. Standby
Looks like it's off, folks.
Unsurprising, really, but still disappointing.
And today's inaction just adds to what was a very frustrating weekend for ETNZ.
There's enough breeze in San Francisco for racing but it's just coming from the wrong direction to make it a fair race.
Unfortunately, the almighty TV dollar meant that was not possible.
Neither team will be particularly upset about the delay. They won't want this thing decided in dodgy conditions. Both sides were offered a different course but it would have meant clearing the shipping lane and neither side had experience sailing there.
So tomorrow will be the 16th day of the regatta - equaling the record for the longest in America's Cup history.
A few bosses around the country won't be too happy about the delays. Can't imagine much work being done tomorrow morning. Of course, here at the NZ Herald we will be working as hard as we always do
Thanks for tuning in, everyone, and sorry we couldn't bring you coverage of some actual sailing. Hopefully tomorrow, at 8.15am NZT, we will have more luck. Stay tuned for some reaction from onboard the boats.
Bob Hawke could also drink a yardie in 11 seconds. Not sure that's relevant, but impressive all the same.
The score remains 8-3, which means Oracle need six wins and Team NZ need only one
Race oraginsers on forecast: "It should clear up. The front is roling through. We should be able to get tow races in today."
"It was close but the reality is we want to make sure it's a quality race - that's only fair for everybody. The breeze was just too far left today."
"We have got through this little front and it's good for the next few days."
Well, thanks for joining us this morning, guys. We may not have had any racing but we had some fun, right? Right?
Check back with nzherald.co.nz throughout the day for reaction from San Francisco.
And join us again at 8am NZT tomorrow morning for - hopefully - race 14 as Emirates Team New Zealand seek the win they need to reclaim the America's Cup.
