High winds again thwart Team New Zealand in San Francisco

9:47 am on 20 September 2013

High winds have denied Team New Zealand a chance to win the America's Cup, with race two on San Francisco Bay called off.

Oracle Team USA won the first race of the day by 31 seconds, to leave Team New Zealand on eight points and Oracle on two, in the race to nine.

The boats got to within almost a minute of an official start in the day's second race but the wind again went past the allowable race limit and officials called racing off.
