Oracle Team USA and Emirates Team New Zealand split two dramatic races on Sunday (September 15), winning one each in heavy winds on San Francisco Bay and sending the America's Cup sailing regatta into a tense and unexpectedly close final week of competition. The second race was among the most thrilling in America's Cup history as the two teams changed leads four times, dueling neck-and-neck for much of the course before New Zealand eked out a 17-second victory.
