Oracle Team USA earns an important point!

, Day 8 - Round Robin 203/06/2017 - Bermuda (BDA) - 35th America's Cup Bermuda 2017 - Louis Vuitton America's Cup Qualifiers

The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Quarterfinals are now in the books as Oracle Team USA wins the series and gets an all important point when they face the challenger for the America’s Cup. Oracle Team USA will now wait and train as they await the remainder of the playoffs to see who will make it to the finals.

Emirates Team New Zealand came in second place, thus entitling them to choose who they will face in the first match. They chose Land Rover BAR. Team Softbank Japan and Artemis Sweden also made it through the playoffs while Groupama Team France were sent home.

The first day of the Challenger semifinals was postponed because of lack of wind. Wind speeds must be at least 6 knots and no more than 24 knots to race.
