Day one of the finals of the 34th America's Cup race on San Francisco Bay, seen from the Schooner Freda B.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, "Emirates Team New Zealand took both races from Oracle Team USA on Saturday, opening day of the America’s Cup finals.
Thanks to Oracle’s penalty, the Kiwis lead the series with two points to minus-two for the American team. The Kiwis need seven more wins to capture the Cup from Oracle.
In a first race enlivened by five near-collisions, Emirates Team New Zealand took control on the upwind third leg (out of five) and beat Oracle Team New Zealand by 36 seconds in the opener of the America’s Cup finals."
