America's Cup: New Zealand sail to victory with crushing win over US

America's Cup Is a Great Sport Again Because We Just Won It

America's Cup Is a Great Sport Again Because We Just Won It

WELLINGTON, June 27 - The NZ Marine Industry Association's executive director Peter Busfield says a number of builders and suppliers in the industry contributed to both finalists' vessels - Team USA's boat was built by Core Builders of Warkworth and Team NZ's by Southern Spars of Avondale.

“We were open-minded all of the way through to make those hard decisions and take the path we did, ” said Ashby, who was instrumental in the switch to cyclors.

"It was our goal and dream to come here and win the America's Cup and to have it sitting there and have it in the morning meeting when we all got together after a bit of recovery from last night, we're just blown away", Burling told Reuters.

David expects to see the level of interest in sailing increase and encouraged any potential new sailors to contact their local yacht club to find out how they can learn to sail. All attentions are on Monday's Match Point.

In 2013 New Zealand surrendered an 8-1 lead as Sir Ben Ainslie led the United States of America side to a seemingly impossible victory, but their title was never in doubt this year. "Anyone can do it, and a lot of people do".

This would be the equivalent of three in every five residents - or almost two thirds - based on the latest population estimates. And they haven't even started to monetize WhatsApp , which should be very close to or over 1.5 billion active users by now.

An emotional Team USA skipper Jimmy Spithill says it's too soon to contemplate his future following his team's defeat in the America's Cup in Bermuda.

"Australasia has won", added New Zealand-born co-host Richard Wilkins, trying to bring some minimal semblance of journalistic accuracy and integrity to the proceedings, despite loud protests from his colleagues.

Newspapers were quick to react. "If we think the team has got a better chance with me off the wheel, no problem", he said when asked whether he would be steering on Monday, after admitting to several mistakes during the racing.

"In Europe, it's a wealthy person's sport, but that's not the case in New Zealand", he said.

"We're disdappinted right now, but full credit to Team NZ", he offered. "It's been a great reversal to come back after losing from 8-1".

During sentencing, Judge Judy Lynch, who jailed Slager, said: 'There's nothing to say to a person like you, Mr Slager. The man initially said he accidentally set his ex-girlfriend aflame when he lit a cigarette.

Heather Burling, mother to helmsman Peter Burling spoke to the Kawe Kōrero team about her son and New Zealand's America's Cup victory.

Ashby, a multihull expert and Olympic silver medallist, is the only non-New Zealander in his crew.

Although there are women in the support crews and shore teams in the main Americas Cup which has just finished in Bermudas Great Sound, sailing remains largely a male preserve.

Oracle Team USA has made changes last week on the boat to improve the speed and it showed on Race 6 on Saturday when they beat Team New Zealand.

The storied trophy had been held by the New York Yacht Club for 132 years until John Bertrand, skippering the Australia II, broke the American stranglehold in 1983 and took the cup Down Under.

On June 21, she took the mound at Kauffman Stadium, throwing out the first pitch before the Royals' 8-3 loss to the Red Sox. Kansas City's Drew Butera caught her warm-up pitches, and as the video shows, he wasn't quite ready for her speed at first.
