Good morning and welcome to nzherald.co.nz's live coverage of races eight and nine in the America's Cup.
This is the fifth day of racing between Emirates Team New Zealand and Oracle Team USA, a day in which Team NZ can move within one victory of reclaiming the Auld Mug.
Team New Zealand are currently on six points, while Oracle are still stranded on minus-one. The Kiwis need three victories to take the trophy and the hosts need an improbable 10.
I will be providing regular updates of the action, while Herald yachting experts Dana Johannsen and Paul Lewis will be chiming in from San Francisco Bay.
We're about 20 minutes away from racing. Could today be the penultimate day of action or can Oracle manufacture an unlikely comeback?
Today, of course, could have been the final day of action, had Oracle not played their postponement card on Wednesday morning. But, after Team NZ won both races on Friday, that tactic looks like it was merely delaying the inevitable.
Well, we just momentarily lost power here at Herald Towers. FIngers crossed that doesn't happen again!
Dean Barker before the race: 'There's a lot of pressure there but this is what we've been training for.
'Its just going to be a case of doing all the little things well.'
'It's part of the motivation - we're here to win the Ameica's Cup. But it's still too far away really to picture it. We've just got to make sure we race each race well.'
Race one today is definitely getting underway but race two could be in doubt, according to regatta director Iain Murray.
Only five minutes or so away from racing.
Quick recap of the course: From the start line they head to the first mark which is a short sprint away. Then it's up the first downwind leg, around mark 2 to begin the only downwind leg, mark 3 leads them to the final downwind leg before they round round 4 for a short sprint to the finish line.
Both boats are about to enter the pre-start area.
Let's hope not! That would be almost as disastrous as another power cut in my newsroom...
Only two minutes away from the official start now as Team NZ enter the starting box.
Good call, Tommie. Apologies in advance if I go dark for a minute or so...
