America's Cup Races Postponed for High Wind:
Sept 17: Photos from Jan Pehrson





Winds were at or above the wind limits even from mid-morning.  Regatta Director Iain Murray surveyed the wind conditions from the Race Committee boat, but the teams wanted to come out in the bay and sail.

At 1:31, following continuous gusts peaking above the limit, and a forecast for the wind to keep increasing, the Regatta Director called off racing for the day.  That didn't stop the competitors from some quick runs around the bay. Photo:2013 Jan Pehrson

The boats actually spent a fair amount of time getting some shelter from the wind in the lee of Sausalito.  Or in Oracle Team USA's case, the lee of Larry Ellison's Musashi. Photo:2013 Jan Pehrson
