Currently, Emirates Team New Zealand sits in first place, with 38 points overall, just four points ahead of the U.S.-flagged Oracle Racing Spithill, with 34 points. Tied for third with 28 points are Oracle Racing Coutts (USA) and Artemis Racing (SWE), both of which plan to rotate in different crew for the regatta. Team Korea has been the sweet surprise over the past two events and sits in fifth place with 26 points. Aleph (FRA) and Energy Team (FRA) are tied in 6th place with 18 points. Both French teams will be racing with new crew in San Diego. Yann Guichard, who has just one day of competition with the team, will be subbing in for Energy Team skipper Loick Peyron; Pierre Pennec, Christophe Espagnon, and Thierry Fouchier—of Group Edmond de Rothschild, which currently holds second overall in the Extreme Sailing Series—will join Aleph in San Diego. Bringing up the rear are the Spanish entry Green Comm Racing—which had a spectacular collision with Artemis Racing in Plymouth—and China Team.
