America's Cup: Emirates Team New Zealand capsize in semifinal

Cup Event Authority Emirates Team New Zealand and Great Britain's Land Rover BAR compete compete during America's Cup challenger semifinals on the Great Sound in Bermuda on Monday June

Ainslie and Iain Percy, the team manager and tactician on fellow America's Cup challenger Artemis Racing, were both close friends of Simpson and helped set up a charity in his name to promote sailing for young people after his death.

The other semi-final between Artemis Racing and SoftBank Team Japan proved a more evenly matched contest, with the Japanese crew recovering from a shaky start to beat the Swedish team in race one.

The crash happened during the fourth race when Team Land Rover of England was competing against Team Fly Emirates of New Zealand.

Wild weather conditions in Bermuda forced the postponement of today's racing in the challenger semifinals, handing Team New Zealand an extra 24 hours to get their boat back in shape following yesterday's terrifying capsize. That first race showed that.

"Ultimately we were please with how we sailed as a team, all teams were struggling to get these boats around the course". The Kiwis made it to the start line in time and passed Land Rover BAR late in the race to win by 2m 10s. "We were really thankful that no-one was hurt", he said in a televised news briefing after the race.

He's struggled for speed on his 50-foot foiling catamaran and been involved in three crashes, including a spectacular one on the first day of the qualifiers that nearly sank his boat.

They sailed with composure, overtaking BAR mid-race and hanging on to take their series lead to 3-0. SoftBank Team Japan race Artemis at 5.36am, with their sixth race at 6.35am.

Three of the crew - Blair Tuke, Andy Maloney and Josh Junior - were catapulted from the boat as it flipped, hitting the water at high speed. The team said it's boat was ready to sail if conditions had allowed.

"We had a bit of a stuff just before the start of that first race began and blew out a bunch of the fairings", revealed Nathan Outteridge, whose team ultimately suffered successive defeats.

"They're already working on the repairs and getting us back out there, and we'll bounce back from this".

On Saturday, Oracle Team USA won the Louis Vuitton America's Cup qualifier event in Bermuda, beating Emirates Team New Zealand and giving the US holders a bonus point for the final.
