After losing the first day of racing at the 35th America’s Cup, the rescheduled series will get underway on Saturday May 27 at 2.00pm (1400hrs) local time and will continue until 5.00pm/1700hrs local time.
An 8-12kts westerly breeze is expected for the start of the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Qualifiers.
Each team will now race twice a day (indicative start times are in local time) for the first two days and will then revert to normal programming with three matches being sailed over a 90 minute period.
It is not known how individual broadcasters will respond to the extra hour of coverage and incorporate it in their program scheduling.
