ORIGINAL POST: 1045 hours

Racing officially begins today at ACWS San Francisco, the first regatta of the second season of the AC World Series featuring 11 crews racing the bucking AC45s on a boisterous San Francisco Bay.

“We’ve all sailed here; we know the winds and currents and we know the performance of these boats,” said America’s Cup Regatta Director Iain Murray. “Add to that these champion sailors and high-performance boats with wingsails, and we’re in for a spectacular five days.”

Match racing dominates today’s schedule, with three pairs racing for the right to advance to the quarterfinal round of the event’s match racing championship (scheduled Thursday and Friday). The first warning signal is slated for 2:00 pm PDT and the first start five minutes later.

The winner of each match will be the first to score 2 points, and the pairings include (in starting order):
No. 8 Luna Rossa – Swordfish vs. No. 9 China Team (winner advances to race Artemis Racing White)
No. 7 Luna Rossa – Piranha vs. No. 10 Artemis Racing Red (winner advances to race ORACLE TEAM USA SPITHILL)
No. 6 Team Korea vs. No. 11 J.P. Morgan BAR (winner advances to race Emirates Team New Zealand)

The weather forecast calls for clouds and fog giving way to clear skies and sunshine this afternoon. Southerly winds of 14-18 knots are predicted by race time at 2:00 pm, and are expected to build to 16-22 knots by late afternoon.
