Team NZ take nosedive amid tough America's Cup conditions

America's Cup Race Management (ACRM), the independent organisation responsible for the rules and regulations of America's Cup racing, postponed racing due to the sea-state and wind speeds on Bermuda's Great Sound racecourse exceeding the 24 knot speed limit agreed by all six America's Cup teams.

He said the boat had just rounded the downwind mark and gotten on the wind when there was a "big crunching sound coming out of the wing".

This was the most serious of Ainslie's troubles this spring. "We knew something fundamental was wrong". He struggled with speed during practice races and was involved in three collisions.

The Kiwi boat capsized in high winds at the start of their semi-final race against Britain's BAR.

“It was fantastic to see our whole team come together, and to be able to repay them with a race win was incredibly pleasing.

He said the team planned to fix that wing sail and use it in two scheduled races against the Kiwis on Tuesday.

The new deal also has lawmakers allocating $210 million more to schools, so that the state will now spend $100 per student. The building was named after a victim of a notorious Panhandle reform school as part of a bill Scott signed on Friday.

Team New Zealand are now in a race against time to get back on the water today, although Peter Burling, the helmsman, insists the “significant damage” to their Americas Cup Class boat is repairable.

Burling had steered his team to a comfortable win in the first race, but not without some nervous moments, as their boat suffered wing damage heading on to the course. We look forward to them being back on the racecourse.”.

Ainslie has rallied before, both in winning Olympic gold medals and in helping Oracle Team USA come back from an 8-1 deficit against Team New Zealand in the 2013 America's Cup to win eight straight races on San Francisco Bay.

He is hoping to become the first Englishman to hoist the Auld Mug in victory.

The top two teams to advance tomorrow from the Semi-Finals will face each other on June 10 in the Challenger Finals (best of 9) to determine who will take on the Defender in the America's Cup Match. Skipper Dean Barker took a tumble on the trampoline.

The semi-final winners will go head-to-head to decide who gets to challenge holders Team USA for the America's Cup itself, starting on June 17.
