Land Rover Bar Move Closer To America's Cup Final

Land Rover Bar Move Closer To America's Cup Final

They will now face Emirates Team New Zealand in the best-of-nine series with three starts scheduled today, three tomorrow and three on Monday if necessary.

Outteridge was plucked out of the water by a chase boat and appeared to be OK.

The mishap occurred during the days third and final match with Artemis barely ahead of the charging Kiwis by four metres as the teams closed in on the weather mark.

The Challenger final victor progress to the America's Cup decider against defending champions Team USA, who have another Novocastrian, wing trimmer Kyle Langford, on board. "We were definitely a bit under-prepared for those conditions", Barker said.

Peter Burling, the New Zealand helmsman, made his Australian long-time rival pay dearly for his mistake by taking the lead and never looking back.

Outteridge said they would review the tape to get a better process in place, should the same thing happen again, but added that "the main goal is to stay on the boat from now on".

The three men had added bags of building gravel and several chairs - possibly to suggest a reason for having hired the van. He was also held on suspicion of preparing terrorist acts and taken into custody while police searched the two properties.

The challenger final resumes on Sunday with three more races.

"Coming to a biennial event it's much more regular racing for the teams, fans and also avoiding this lack of continuity between events where you get this hiatus or 12 to 18 months where the format is decided for the next time".

"It didn't go all our way in that race either, we had our own battles, but really happy to take it through to the next round", he said.

Although Barker, who was skipper of the losing New Zealand America's Cup crew in San Francisco in 2013, tried everything he could to catch Sweden, he was unable to close the gap in time and Artemis Racing romped home with a comfortable lead. Race officials later said Artemis shouldn't have been penalized.

The pair were locked one-all going into the last race, and Team New Zealand was on the charge from behind when disaster struck the Swedish team. "We thought we were going to have a piece at the top".

Land Rover and 11th Hour Racing have both confirmed their commitment to continue their partnerships with the team and Land Rover BAR skipper and team principal Sir Ben Ainslie believes his team will come back stronger for the next America's Cup competition.
