Team New Zealand wins 2nd America's Cup World Series stop

GOTHENBURG, Sweden (AP) Emirates Team New Zealand won the second America's Cup World Series stop of the year after finishing second and first in Sunday's races.

Led by skipper Glenn Ashby and new helmsman Peter Burling, the Kiwis performed well in light, shifty conditions.

Two-time defending America's Cup champion Oracle Team USA was fourth in both races Sunday. It had two first-place finishes Saturday and finished the regatta in second place.

Land Rover Ben Ainslie Racing came in third after winning the America's Cup World Series opener at home in Portsmouth, England.

Emirates Team New Zealand leads the overall standings, followed by Land Rover BAR and Oracle. The final stop of the year will be in mid-October in Bermuda.
