Racing started a half hour earlier than usual, to take advantage of the morning breeze, and Gavin Brady steered the team to a come-from-behind win over Artemis in the first match, earning another critical point. A pass on the late stages of the second beat gave the lead to BMW ORACLE, who went on to a 17-second win.

The team is scheduled to face the Russian Synergy team next, to complete their first Round Robin matches.
