Artemis Racing wins America's Cup World Series stop

TOULON, France (AP) Artemis Racing of Sweden won the America's Cup World Series stop in France with finishes of first, third and fifth in Sunday's races.

Softbank Team Japan went from last on Saturday to finishing second overall, and Land Rover BAR of Britain finished third.

Land Rover BAR, led by Sir Ben Ainslie, extended its lead in the overall series to 14 points over two-time defending America's Cup champion Oracle Team USA. Emirates Team New Zealand, the hard-luck loser to Oracle in the 2013 America's Cup, is right behind in third place.

Rounding out the overall standings are SoftBank Team Japan, Artemis Racing and Groupama Team France.

Groupama Team France finished fourth in its home regatta, Emirates Team New Zealand fifth and Oracle was last.

These are warmup regattas for the 2017 America's Cup in Bermuda.
