America’s Cup San Francisco (2) – Match Racing Qualifiers

This post is part of my America’s Cup in San Francisco blog post series.

After a beautiful but short Indian Summer, the weather changed today and at San Francisco’s Marina we had a complete whiteout this afternoon. With the outgoing tide and wind speed above 20 knots, the conditions couldn’t be more different to yesterdays practice races under a blue sky.

Here is the list of winners who advance to the quarter finals:

  • Team Korea
  • Team Energy (France)
  • Emirates Team New Zealand
  • J.P. Morgan BAR (UK)
  • Artemis Racing – Red (Sweden)
