    Racing at the America’s Cup World Series San Francisco got underway today with seven races in the qualifying round of the match racing championship.

    With the wind gusting over 20 knots and creating a nasty chop on San Francisco Bay, Artemis Racing – Red (Nathan Outteridge), Emirates Team New Zealand (Dean Barker), Energy Team (Loïck Peyron), J.P. Morgan BAR (Ben Ainslie) and Team Korea (Peter Burling) all advanced to the quarterfinal round, with matches scheduled for Thursday and Friday.

    China Team (Phil Robertson, pictured) won his first match race of the AC World Series and stood on the brink of advancing to the quarterfinal round, but didn’t start his final match against Artemis Racing – Red due to broken frames in the wingsail.

    Full report to come. Visit the America’s Cup website for more information.
