Emirates Team NEW ZELAND
The present Emirates Team New Zeland has its roots in the successful 1995 challenge. The New Zeland team made on of the strongest campaigns in the America's Cup story. The team which, besides blake, included the guru in yacht design, Mr. Tom Schackenberg & Russel Coutts as steerman, defeated the other challengers without problems and won the America's Cup scoring a triumphal 5-0. In 2000 when the New Zeland team first defended the cup in Auckland, their superiority was clear even against a strong, well-trained team, such as Prada. Russel Coutts left the New Zeland team along with other members for Alinghi, the New Swiss Syndacate. Barker ws asked to lead the team with Schackenberg.

The New Zeland team was obliged to retire from the first regatta for average, in the second they were defeated and in the 4th their mast broke. Alinghi with Russel Coutts as steerman got an easy 5-0 and brought the Cup to Europe. The New Emirates 2000 team has much in common with the 1995 team: in fact Gran Dalton has chosen to lead the Kiwi recovery. The New Zelanders have some of the best sailmakers and builders in the world.
