Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) simply delivered a stunning performance every day throughout every stage of the competition on water. By first taking a 5-2 win in the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger Finals, the ETNZ advanced to the America’s Cup Match against Oracle Team USA. It was then when ETNZ proved to be extremely powerful and the Kiwis sailed confidently to a well deserved victory. The “Auld Mug” is now back in New Zealand!
