Lynch decided on comeback after Raiders announced move

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch fields questions after the team's organized team activity at its NFL football training facility Tuesday

The victor of the best of nine series will go on to challenge Oracle Team USA for the America's Cup.

Artemis skipper Nathan Outteridge hailed his side's comeback from 3-1 down.

Land Rover BAR's first Challenge for the America's Cup ended on the Great Sound, Bermuda, at the Play-off Semi Finals stage of the competition.

Team New Zealand lead 3-1 in the first-to five contest.

Going into the last day of the Qualifiers last Saturday June 3 Emirates Team New Zealand were leading Defending Champion Oracle Team USA by 1 point with a head to head race between the two teams to play.

But Artemis and Outteridge were soon hunting them down, and the Swedes seized control when Outteridge's overtaking maneuver allowed them to pull clear on the third leg after Japan tacked poorly.

"We're absolutely stoked", Outteridge said shortly after clinching the win.

Emirates Team New Zealand, skippered by Peter Burling, capsizes.

But after making a crucial error in the first race and allowing New Zealand to get past them, Artemis Racing sailed a near ideal race in their second encounter to level the series.

Helmsman Burling, an Olympic gold-medallist, was bullish in Bermuda and said his Kiwi outfit would've won regardless of Outteridge's slip.

"Once I resurfaced I looked up and sort of made a little prayer and wished the guys best of luck, and hoped they made the cross and could make a couple of gybes, but it's pretty hard, when any person goes overboard, to get these boats around the track". And as Glenn Ashby said: “We went down the mine.”.

"I was really proud of the way the team sailed today and the way we approached the whole series", Ainslie said. He helped Oracle Team USA rally from an 8-1 deficit to win eight straight races against Team New Zealand in 2013 to retain the oldest trophy in global sports.

Outteridge timed his start to perfection in the second race and held off Japan to win by 28 seconds.

"I don't think the wing will be a big issue at all", skipper Ben Ashby said.

Artemis Racing was a new syndicate four years ago but was devastated when Simpson was killed when its 72-foot catamaran broke apart during a training run in May 2013.

New Zealand's chances of fixing their boat are "more hopeful than first thought", says the New Zealand Herald.

SoftBank Team Japan hit something shortly after leaving its base for the race course.
