Auckland's weather should come to the America's Cup party on Wednesday, with racing-friendly winds predicted by MetService.
With Emirates Team NZ poised on matchpoint, Tuesday's second race was scrapped on the Waitematā Harbour, as the breeze switched direction and officials could not turn the course in time for the 6pm racing deadline.
But a northeast wind should hit the Hauraki Gulf on Wednesday afternoon, which would lead to uninterrupted action.
MetService forecasts up to 15 knots, but as low at seven knots by race time (4:15pm), easing to between 5-10 knots in the early evening.
The predicted northeast breeze rules out a return to the spectator-friendly 'stadium' Course C.
Afternoon showers are also forecast, which could add to the drama, as the rain may bring shifty winds.
New Zealand can retain the 'Auld Mug' with one race victory on Wednesday.
Event boss Iain Murray has opted to create an extended Course A - which he calls Course A/B - for Races 10 and 11 (if needed), to allow him the wriggle room to make changes, depending on the wind direction and spectator fleet.
If you're not on the water today, the best spots to view the racing are Cheltenham Beach, Narrow Neck Beach and Takapuna Beach Reserve, Takapuna Beach, Milford Beach and any of the other East Coast Bays.
