It's crunch time for Oracle Team USA. Surely the America's Cup holders can't claw their way back against Emirates Team New Zealand. But they did it in 2013... The final set of races starts again on Saturday 24 June. Here's how you can watch all the action

Defending Champions ORACLE TEAM USA will be looking at making history by becoming only the second team to win three consecutive America’s Cup matches, but they have some catching up to do.

Emirates Team New Zealand are in dominant form (you might be surprised to hear what their secret really is), yet surely the Americans’ magnificent comeback from 8-1 down to win it 9-8 four years ago must be nagging at the back of the Kiwis’ minds…

Don’t miss a moment of the action. The final set of races starts again on Saturday 24 June and New Zealand need just four more wins.
