They continue to have trouble with uncooperative weather in Valencia. We are so close to seeing these incredible boats compete!
VALENCIA, Spain — Race 1 of the America’s Cup was postponed again Wednesday, this time because of big waves on the Mediterranean Sea.
Racing was called off just before noon Wednesday. The big multihulls, USA and Alinghi 5, didn’t even leave the docks.
Race organizers will try again on Friday to get in the first race of the nautical grudge match between American challenger BMW Oracle Racing and two-time defending champion Alinghi of Switzerland.
Alinghi and BMW Oracle Racing are trying to settle their differences on the water after the sailing classic was disrupted by a bitter court fight that lasted 2 1/2 years.
The weather hasn’t cooperated, though.
