America's Cup: The cat that came back in Bermuda

- Pitchpoled into the whipped up waters of Bermuda's Great Sound, Team New Zealand's America's Cup challenge quite literally teetered on the brink. It's hard to know what was running through the mind of the preternaturally composed helmsman Peter Burling as he sat suspended in the airborne starboard hull after Wednesday's shocking capsize, but it was unlikely to have been, "I wonder who we'll face in the final?" Just 48 hours after the near-catastrophic crash, Emirates Team New Zealand secured their place in the America's Cup challenger final with a courageous show of sailing

A Bermuda triangle: Where to eat, stay and play

- Hamilton, Bermuda (CNN)The 35th America's Cup sailing competition begins on May 26 and runs through June 27, and it's Bermuda's moment in the sun, though Bermuda is almost always sunny.

But after almost four years of preparations and millions of dollars developing their 50-foot (15m) America's Cup Class craft, racing should be tight when it begins on Friday to decide which of the five challengers will take on Oracle Team USA
