Notes:

All dates and times are San Francisco local (Pacific Daylight Time).  Some race start times may end up varying from those currently listed depending on local wind and tide conditions. 

As of September 2, scheduled starts for the America's Cup Match were shifted from 10 minutes past the hour to 15 minutes past the hour.  The latest that a race may start each day is now 2:40 pm PDT.  (See Sailing Instructions Amendment 1

The time limit for each Race of the America's Cup Match is 40 minutes.

A "Reserve Day" may be used by ACRM for racing to keep the series on track if an earlier day in the series is not sailed to completion for reasons such as weather or other interruptions.

An "Off Day" is one for which no official plans have been published.

A "Lay Day" is one which the teams have agreed not to race.

Please note that Races 5-7 of the LVC Semi-Finals, 7-13 of the LVC Finals, and Race 10 or later of the America's Cup Match will be sailed only as needed for determining the match winner.  Update: In light of the 2-point penalty applied to the Defender on September 3, up to 19 completed races could be necessary to decide the match.

Important: This schedule is subject to change by America's Cup event organizers.  Make business and travel plans at your own risk.

*Artemis Racing did not race their Round Robin matches against the other teams, but did race in the Semi-Finals beginning Aug 6th.  Additionally, the teams were not been able to agree on how to modify the schedule to adjust to Artemis Racing's late readiness, so the Artemis Round Robin matches remained on the official schedule.  Their scheduled opponent for each match needed to sail the course alone to collect points toward the Semi-Final and Final standings.  ETNZ, having clinched the top finish in the RR standings, announced July 28 that they would not sail in the their remaining RR5 match against Artemis.

**Races have shifted days from original schedule in response to postponements due to high winds.
