America's Cup 2017: A lack of wind has today frustrated teams like Land Rover BAR
Today is scheduled to be the fifth day of racing in Bermuda with Ben Ainslie's British Land Rover BAR team set for contests against New Zealand and France.
The teams are all vying for the right to take on Oracle Team USA in the America's Cup at the end of the month and the Brits broke their losing streak with a victory over Sweden yesterday.
However, they could be made to wait until tomorrow for their next race due to winds in the Atlantic being too light for the £10million catamarans to compete in.
Ainslie's side have only won two of their last six races but a two-point bonus for winning the World Series in the build-up to the month in Bermuda could still see them win the right to race for the America's Cup.

But the four-time Olympic gold medallist knows how difficult things can be at sea, especially at speed.
"You make one mistake in these boats and it can cost of everything," Ainslie said yesterday.
"Once you have one bad manoeuvre it just snowballs and you can't catch up.
"It gets harder and harder to bring it back because of the energy levels required.
"We can do a better job. The hard thing for Giles [Scott, Olympic Finn champion and Land Rover BAR sailor] is the physicality.
"He's fully locked into grinding and we can't make a change there.

"Between he and I we have to work out who takes responsibility for the key decisions.
"But we've got a great relationship so we're confident we can do that.
"Our overall communication is good, it's just those key moments when I have to take over."
But the French, who were comprehensively beaten by America's Cup holders Oracle Team USA on Tuesday, have won two races, including a memorable victory over Land Rover BAR.

"We have to create the speed to fly, this is the challenge for us," Cammas said.
SoftBank Team Japan, who are also relative late-comers to the America's Cup, are also on two points going into their encounter with the French crew, who are scheduled to race Ainslie's team later in the day.
Each of the six teams races the other twice in the head-to-head match race format, with a point for the winner. The challenger with the fewest points at the end of the qualifiers will not go through to the next semi-final round.
If no racing is possible due to the conditions on Bermuda's Great Sound on Wednesday, it will be postponed to Thursday, which was earmarked as a "lay day" in the regatta for crews to regroup before the next round of races.
