America’s Cup Racing Postponed After Winds Exceed Safety LimitsAaron Kuriloff
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.
