Today's Americas Cup Match Races And Points

The first Round Robin of the Louis Vuitton Cup, the selection series for the eleven challengers to the America's Cup, started yesterday on Auckland's Hauraki Gulf.

In the first Round Robin each team will race against the others one time only. Each day the Race Committee gives the start of two series of five matches each, two on one race course and three on the other (the courses are named Atlantic and Pacific).

This means that each team will complete a maximum of two races per day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon for a total of ten races per Round Robin.

The first start of the day is scheduled at 10.40 am local time, and the last race cannot be started after 16.00 am local time.

The start of each match will be given at an interval of 10 minutes.
