Sailing: New Zealand and Sweden wait for wind in America's Cup clash

Team New Zealand helmsman Peter Burling on the move from hull to hull during a tack in the America's Cup challengers final

Burling's lead then opened up and, by the time New Zealand crossed the line, Artemis Racing had sailed off the course and retired from the race.

Emirates Team New Zealand competes on the second day of the best-of-nine America's Cup challenger finals on Bermuda's Great Sound, Sunday, June 11.

"We were planning on going through the gate and carrying on for another 18 seconds through the gate and gybing through the finish. Certainly the racing is going to be very close with wins going either way and whoever sails best of those days will take the races which is pretty exciting I think". It's more what we do in the upwind legs to help keep them behind us.

"We can be really proud of the way we raced".

The next day's racing was postponed by high winds, and the Kiwis returned to the water on Thursday to eliminate Britain's Land Rover BAR and clinch a spot in the finals. It rebounded from a 3-1 deficit to win four straight races against SoftBankTeam Japan to win its challenger semifinal, but too many unforced errors cost it against the Kiwis.

While Outteridge won Olympic gold in 2012, Burling got his revenge in 2016 in Rio, relegating his rival to silver.

He notified federal authorities, and confirmed that the information has now been secured against public access. Deep Root's data was exposed after the company updated its security settings on June 1, Lundry said.

While Outteridge has managed to get the team off to some stunning sling-shot starts, the team have struggled with consistency. "We'll review the footage from today and probably review yesterday's again, and come out tomorrow with a new and improved game plan".

The Kiwis won the delayed seventh race in dominant fashion in Bermuda on Tuesday (NZT) to win the best-of-nine challenger final 5-2.

"The boat's going just fine", Outteridge said. The Kiwis had to bear away and called for a penalty but it was waved off.

New Zealand restored their advantage in the second race, then survived a late mistake to edge the fast-closing Swedes by a nose in the third. Burling and his Kiwis nearly made the pass, but this time, Artemis Racing recovered - just in time - and protected through to the finish. The caveat is if one of these two teams had previously won the Qualifiers (first stage), the opposing team will begin this Match with a one point disadvantage (ie, minus 1), meaning they will need to win eight races while the advantaged team must win seven races. We're learning a lot about how to come from behind... "And we got a good start, so it's all the little things we've worked on all week".

"It's obviously a massive milestone for us as a team to be through to the Cup final, and be able to take on Oracle next week", he said. The Kiwis later sacked skipper Dean Barker. Barker also skippered Team New Zealand during the loss to Alinghi of Switzerland in the 2007 America's Cup match.

Both men have been sailing with their 49er partners in the America's Cup competition, with Burling's crew Blair Tuke joining him in the New Zealand boat and Outteridge's team mate Iain Jensen aboard the Artemis catamaran as a "grinder".
