SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Two America's Cup races between Emirates Team Zealand and Oracle Team USA have been postponed Tuesday because of high winds blowing against a strong tide sweeping out of San Francisco Bay.

Organizers say lighter wind is expected Wednesday, when they'll try to get in Races 11 and 12. The schedule is four races behind.

Team New Zealand leads 7-1 and needs two wins to claim the America's Cup for the second time in 18 years. Oracle was penalized two points in a cheating scandal so it needs eight more victories to keep the Auld Mug.

On Tuesday, the wind gusted just above 24 knots right before the races were called off. The ebb tide was flowing at 2.7 knots, which meant the wind limit for the day was 20.3 knots.
