The 34th America's Cup is getting more intriguing each passing day as Oracle Team USA and the unpredictable weather continue to give Emirates Team New Zealand more pains heading into the 12th day of championship racing on San Francisco Bay.

America's Cup Live Streaming - Oracle Team USA vs. Emirates Team New Zealand - Race Nos. 14 & 15
Emirates Team New Zealand has been on match-point since Thursday, but Oracle Team USA has been successful in spoiling the Kiwis' America's Cup celebration back home after winning races 12 and 13. Mother Nature has also not been cooperative as of late as unpredictable winds and huge ebb forced the race committee to scrap six scheduled races, including Saturday's washout.
Fortunately for America's Cup fans, Sunday's weather forecast will finally provide a perfect sailing condition for both AC Catamarans boats. Sunny weather is expected with slow but steady wind blows throughout the afternoon. 12 to 15 knots winds are predicted on Race no. 14 while 15 to 18 knots winds are expected on Race no. 15, if Oracle forced another race on Sunday.
"It's going to be a building breeze all day," AC Regatta Director Iain Murray said during the pre-race briefing on Sunday. "Right now we're in a transition period between the northwest gradient to the southwest; there's light wind on the course but it's coming around to the west, which we need it to do."
