Now the longest ever match in the competition's history, the 34th America's Cup has reached race 19 and the final head-to-head between defenders ORACLE TEAM USA and challengers Emirates Team New Zealand.

The exciting thing for me is seeing how this team has gelled together. Every day we've managed to step it up more.

Jimmy Spithill, ORACLE TEAM USA skipper

Following a clean sweep of races 17 and 18 on Tuesday, the Americans completed their impressive comeback and set the stage for a thrilling, winner-takes-all stand off in the last confrontation between the two elite crews.

We do believe we can win. We know if we put the pieces together we’ll be successful.

Dean Barker, Emirates Team New Zealand skipper

The Kiwis came in 27 seconds and 54 seconds behind in races 17 and 18 respectively, making the scoreboard now 8-8 (although ORACLE TEAM USA have in fact won 10 races, they have only eight points due to a previously imposed penalty).

So it all comes down to this – who will clinch the final, crucial point for a piece of sailing glory and the 34th America's Cup? Don't miss the ultimate instalment of the high-speed action!

Watch the final race in the 34th America's Cup LIVE on Race 19 starts at 10.15pm CEST (1.15pm PDT) on Wednesday, September 25.
