    Here are the race results for today.


    The three matches of the qualifying round for the ACWS San Francisco Match Racing Championship have all concluded with scores of 2-0: Luna Rossa Swordfish defeated China Team, Luna Rossa Piranha defeated Artemis Racing Red and J.P. Morgan BAR defeated Team Korea.

    The final match was easily the most entertaining of the three. It pitted Olympic gold medalists Ben Ainslie (BAR) against Nathan Outteridge (Team Korea). BAR posted a come-from-behind win in both matches to win by 13 and 29 seconds.

    The winners move onto the quarterfinal round. The matches include: Luna Rossa Swordfish vs. Artemis Racing White, Luna Rossa Piranha vs. ORACLE TEAM USA SPITHILL AND J.P. Morgan BAR vs. Emirates Team New Zealand. The fourth quarterfinal match is between ORACLE TEAM USA COUTTS and Energy Team.

    The first two, one race matches will be sailed tomorrow and the second two matches, also one race affairs, on Friday.

    Racing resumes tomorrow with a warning signal scheduled for 2:00 pm PDT.

    Wonder if they were good races or not? No capsizes today?
