Team New Zealand has taken a 4-2 lead in the America's Cup challenger final series after winning two of three races in Bermuda this morning.
New Zealand looked comfortable for most of the final race today before a bad manoeuvre with the finish line in sight nearly undid them.
Sweden's Artemis came screaming in, seemingly from nowhere, but New Zealand grabbed a photo finish in the end.
Artemis protested the course steered by New Zealand helmsman Peter Burling in the final few seconds of the race, but the umpire ruled the New Zealand catamaran was not at fault.
Team New Zealand lost all three starts in a day of changing fortunes.
Artemis won the day's first race by 15 seconds. After an even start, the Swedish team snuck ahead on the first leg and held on for a comfortable victory, despite one occasion where they appeared to lose control of their boat.
Team New Zealand then bounced back, winning the second race after the Swedes had to temporarily retire in the fifth leg with daggerboard problems.
The racing will continue tomorrow, with Team New Zealand one win away from confirming its status as the challenger in the America's Cup final.
