Team NZ into final in Plymouth

8:35 am on 17 September 2011

Team New Zealand has won through to the finals of the Plymouth Match Racing Championship after beating Oracle 2-1.

The team's opponent in the finals will be decided tomorrow when top seed Artemis races Team Korea in the second semi-final.

Team New Zealand faltered in their first semi-final race, leading from the start but then allowing the Americans to pick up a wind shift to take the lead and win by 19 seconds.

However Dean barker's crew won the next 2 races easily.
