A late rule change has seen teams clash on the eve of the Prada Cup semifinal series, while American Magic had a big scare during their first outing back on the water after their capsize.
Here's all you need to know from today's America's Cup news.
New rule scrapped
American Magic skipper Terry Hutchinson has voiced his disappointment at a decision by the Challenger of Record to scrap the 15-minute delay rule trialled in last weekend's final round-robin race - despite not consulting any of the challengers.
The move has also surprised regatta director Iain Murray, while Team New Zealand have revealed they never consented to the change.
US crew 'left shaken'
Meanwhile, the American syndicate survived a scare on their return to the water that reportedly left the crew "shaken".
Hutchinson and Co have worked hard to repair the damage from their dramatic capsize in the first week of Prada Cup racing and re-launched Patriot 2.0 on Wednesday before hitting the water ahead of the semifinals against Luna Rossa.
It didn't quite go according to plan, however...
Matches to remember

Christopher Reive: The real problem with Patriot 2.0
When American Magic unveiled their patched-up boat earlier this week, where once was a gaping hole caused by its capsize had been covered back up. In its place, an image resembling two band-aids with the New Zealand, British and Italian flags overlapping, and the words 'thank you' written alongside it.
It's a touching gesture to thank the other syndicates for their help in not letting the American vessel sink but, in the immortal words of Taylor Swift, band-aids don't fix bullet holes.
