America's Cup: Friday Racing Preview



    The America's Cup World Series racing continues today, with Bob Redell reporting that near-perfect conditions reign on the Bay. (Published Friday, Aug. 24, 2012)

    Fleet racing continues after Team Oracle dominated Thursday's races with a one and a two. South Korea lurks in fifth place, but may be a team to watch.

    Here's how The America's Cup Desk describes this weekend's action:

    • On Saturday, the sailors will race each other in two more fleet races, which is when all the boats are on the water. Also tomorrow it will be a fight to the finish in the semi finals in the match racing, which is when the boats compete one on one.
    • On Sunday the finals will begin. All the sailors will compete in one final fleet race and those who are still in the running will compete in final match racing. Laurence Scott will continue our live presence out on the deck at America's Cup Village.
