Emirates Team New Zealand produced a stunning performance to outclass Oracle Team USA in the first two races of the 34th America’s Cup on San Francisco Bay on Saturday.

Already entering Day 1 down two points because of a penalty incurred for adding illegal weight to boats used in a previous preparatory Cup competition, Oracle essentially fell four points behind as experienced skipper Dean Barker led his crew to victories of 36 and 52 seconds.

The Kiwis need seven more victories to secure the title while reigning champions Oracle Team USA, owned by software billionaire Larry Ellison, must now win 11 races to retain the Cup.
