Race One Of Semifinals Postponed Due To High Winds
No racing today, day one of the Louis Vuitton Cup 2002-2003 semifinals, raced on a best of seven series. The Race Committee was forced to postpone all racing at 14:30, due to the strong winds, well over the 19 knots limit. All racing will resume tomorrow.

OneWorld has also been directed to pay the sum of US$65.000, covering the cost of the Arbitration Panel, by December 16th.
