US Wins Race 13; Needs 6 Races to Keep the Cupposted: 9/20/2013
The Kiwis led in Race 13 on Sept. 20 by more than 1,000 yards on the second downwind leg when the 40-minute time limit for the race expired and the race was abandoned. The Kiwis had only about 1 nautical mile remaining to the finish when the limit expired.
Oracle Team USA stayed alive for another day, winning the re-sail of Race 13 Sept. 20 by 1 minute, 24 seconds.
New Zealand still leads the series 8-3. Oracle Team USA has won five races, but because of a two-point penalty by an international jury, needs six more consecutive wins to retain the Auld Mug.
Officials have scheduled Races 14 and 15 for Saturday, Sept. 21 -- beginning at 1:15 p.m. The races are scheduled to be televised by the NBC Sports Network.
