  • A number of Team New Zealand crew members were thrown into the water at one point

While SoftBank Team Japan face Artemis Racing in the other semi-final confrontation.

Artemis Racing of Sweden is the comeback syndicate of the 35th America's Cup so far.

Luke Parkinson, rear, takes over on the wheel of Sweden's Artemis Racing after skipper Nathan Outteridge was lost overboard. "The boys really dug deep".

The win means that Team New Zealand can seal progression to take on Oracle Team USA for the chance to bring the America's Cup home.

They advance to face the victor between Sweden's Artemis Racing and SoftBank Team Japan. I think the great thing about our team is that we are constantly improving.

He said the team planned to fix that wing sail and use it in two scheduled races against the Kiwis on Tuesday.

"It's really easy to get caught up in the battle and forget the details that are required to sail well".

It raised the question: What would happen if Peter Burling fell off the Team New Zealand boat during a race? At Rio last summer, Burling and Tuke won the gold medal with Outteridge and Jensen taking the silver.

Outteridge said it's much more than a trans-Tasman showdown between skippers.

In addition, USA crude stockpiles fell by 1.7 million barrels, less than the expected decline of 2.7 million barrels. ET, the Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 160.94 points, or 1.05 per cent, to 15,218.61.

Ainslie said it appeared Burling made a slight misjudgment on rake and angle.

The delay will come as a relief for Team NZ, handing them an extra day to get their boat back in shape and psychologically recover from the shock of yesterday's dramatic capsize. Race officials later said Artemis shouldn't have been penalized.

“We definitely didnt feel like we had it set up quite 100 per cent because the breeze was going up and down, we were kind of chasing it all day.

The challenger final resumes on Sunday with three more races.

Friday's race against the Japanese crew was tight, hinging on a tactical mistake by their skipper Dean Barker who was forced to a standstill by Outteridge when he tried to get past them in the middle of their head-to-head encounter. "Boat is making its way back to dock to assess damage".

This was another painful loss for Barker.

New Zealand are now one step closer to a rematch with Oracle Team USA - who rallied from 8-1 down to beat the Kiwis in the 34th America's Cup four years ago.

The British crew had suffered equipment failure on Monday when part of their wing controls broke, meaning they had to forfeit two races to their New Zealand opponents.

But he empathised with his Australian counterpart, having tumbled from the boat himself while Team New Zealand were preparing in Auckland.
