Welcome to smoother sailing, two days after destruction derby day.
The Kiwi boat capsized in high winds at the start of their semi-final race against Britain's BAR.
"I think certainly two months ago, we were really struggling with performance against these teams and we have had a number of upgrades that we needed to sort out".
A storming comeback by Sweden's Artemis secured it three wins in a row today, to lead Dean Barker's Softbank Team Japan 4-3, meaning the pair resume the duel on Saturday morning.
In the third race, SoftBank Team Japan didn't give Artemis enough room at the fifth gate mark and was penalized.
The breeze is expected to settle to 12-18 knots from the southwest accompanied by a 50/50 chance for scattered showers in the afternoon. "The whole team, the designers, the shore team, the sailing team, everyone worked really hard to get us competitive".

Outteridge fell off his catamaran as it went through a manoeuvre in race three in Bermuda's Great Sound.
This is the moment Emirates Team New Zealand suffered a spectacular capsize in their America's Cup semi-final against Sir Ben Ainslie's Land Rover BAR team. And as Glenn Ashby said: We went down the mine..
The British crew had come through problems of their own, after suffering equipment failure on Monday when part of their wing controls broke and they had to forfeit two races to their New Zealand opponents. There could also be damage to the boat's electronic systems.
Team New Zealand skipper Peter Burling said it's "never something you want to look across at your competitor and know they've got some pretty serious damage on board. Three of them were still in the boat after it capsized, while three were thrown from it".
Support boats quickly surrounded the stricken catamaran as some of the New Zealand team swam away.
The bows immediately dived into the waves. Pieces of boats were flying every which way, as fairings were torn off by wind and wave. Team NZ now leads the series 3-1 but face a race against time to be ready for the next race in the series.
