Sept. 17 (Bloomberg) -- Racing in the America’s Cup sailing series was postponed today and rescheduled for tomorrow because winds on San Francisco Bay exceeded safety limits.

The wind limit was reduced after a May training accident that killed Andrew Simpson, a British Olympic gold medalist and member of the Swedish Cup team Artemis Racing.

Emirates Team New Zealand remains two races from winning the 162-year-old trophy. Oracle Team USA needs eight wins to take the Cup.
