3:07 pm on 28 July 2013

Team New Zealand collected another round-robin forfeit victory over Swedish rival Artemis in the America's Cup challenger series on San Francisco Bay today.

The Kiwi crew, having already clinched the round-robin against the idled Swedish entry and Italy's Luna Rossa, sailed alone as they have all but three times this month, defeating Luna Rossa in those head-to-head outings to start the challenger races.

Skipper Dean barker says they go out there to race as hard as they can every time.

Team New Zealand had Glenn Ashby on the helm today with Barker taking a break.
