The AC Qualifiers begin on 26 May 2017 and will eliminate one challenger. The winner of the Qualitiers – Oracle or a challenger – will earn a one point lead to start the America’s Cup Match.
At the AC World Series in Fukuoka, BAR extended their lead. Oracle stayed ahead of Team New Zealand. Artemis Racing moved ahead of SoftBank Team Japan, the only change in the leaderboard.
Remember that these standings will be used as the tie-breaker at the end of the AC Qualifiers – they could determine which challenger is eliminated and who gets a one point lead in the America’s Cup Match.
