The Wall Street Journal: New Zealand just one win from clinching America’s Cup

BERMUDA — Emirates Team New Zealand won a pair of America’s Cup races on Sunday to move within a single victory of capturing sailing’s flagship trophy from Larry Ellison’s Oracle Team USA.

Racing in shifty breezes off Bermuda in front of a fleet of hundreds of spectator boats, the Kiwis were faster off the starting line in both races, leaping ahead on the early legs and maintaining comfortable leads around the course.

New Zealand was aided along the way by a series of mistakes from the U.S. team, which stalled before one start, incurred a penalty for sailing outside the course boundary and executed some maneuvers poorly during both heats.
