Breeze is up - re-sail scheduled

BMW ORACLE Racing is up against it today. After the redress hearing last night brought no joy, the team now faces Emirates Team New Zealand in a re-sail of the match the team won in controversial circumstances.

The wind at dock-out time (0810 local) was up near 20 knots and is expected to build throughout the day, putting the schedule at the Louis Vuitton Trophy under more pressure. PRO Peter Reggio is hoping to get at least a couple of flights off before the wind builds too much.
