New Zealand Rematch With The U.S.

Emirates Team of New Zealand sailed a revenge match with event holder Oracle Team USA by convincingly beating Artemis Racing 5-2 of Sweden in the Challenger final. The race held on Monday in Bermuda.

New Zealand sailing squad is looking to avenge their defeat by the team U.S. in San Francisco in the year 2013 when the team was on the end of losing one of the biggest ever sporting comebacks.

With the striking red, black and white hulls and “wing” revolutionary “cycling” system to power their on-board hydraulics, the team led by Glenn Ashby has been favorites of both spectators and organizers throughout the event. The team is helmed by Peter Burling.

Last week, the team bounced back almost a catastrophic capsize when racing Land Rover BAR. The 50-foot (15 meter) catamaran and wing foil got damaged because of the incident, but was repaired in time and that helped the team beat the crew of the British and move forward to the Challenger final.

Although Artemis Racing put competed in the race well and give a good fight to New Zealand. But the crew of New Zealand consistently overpowered them with their focused approach and maneuverability.

The celebrations on the board started as the catamaran of New Zealand crossed the line just a minute ahead of the boat of Sweden.

The race was truly amazing and the sailors. And it is not just one sailor who was the best in the team, but we can say that every sailor competing in this championship is best. They all have something unique.

A spectator said that, in the race it seems that the boats are not sailing, but they are flying over the water and that too very smoothly. Watching the America’s Cup is truly an experience that has no alternative.
