Dean Barker on Team Japan's challenge for the America's Cup

From Checkpoint, 5:45 pm on 11 May 2017

Former Team NZ skipper Dean Barker is adamant this year's America's Cup will be more than a two-yacht race.

Barker was at the helm in 2013 when Team New Zealand infamously lost to Cup holders, Oracle Team USA, after leading 8-1.

Now in charge of Team Japan, Barker told John Campbell the Cup qualifiers, which start in Bermuda later this month, will be a lot tighter than four years ago.
