What's the ∆?
∆ is the Greek letter Delta, used to mean "difference" and here identifying the margin of victory at the finish line.

June 5: GBR was DNF in Race 1 and DNS for Race 2. Their wing was damaged on Leg 2 of the first race, leading them to retire from Race 1.  The damage was not repairable in time to start Race 2.

June 6: SWE was DNF in Race 3, retiring after JPN had finished, to maximize time to repair damage to SWE's boat sustained in the race.  NZL was DNS in Race 4 after capsizing in the starting box before crossing the start line.  A boat that capsizes is automatically disqualified (see scoring note below).

DNS = Did Not Start   DNF = Did Not Finish

Notes on scoring:

In a strict sense, under the Racing Rules of Sailing for the America's Cup (RRSAC), boats with a DNS or DNF outcome prompt the umpires to rule the boat as disqualified (DSQ), for not being able to complete the course properly.  On this page, DNS and DNF where applicable are being used because the abbreviations are more descriptive, but officially DSQ is proper.
