Team New Zealand eyeing America's Cup glory after setting up USA rematch

The New Zealanders set up a rematch with Team USA thanks to a 5-2 series win over Sweden in Bermuda on Monday.

Team New Zealand are confident of winning the 35th America's Cup after clinching their challenger final against Sweden.

The New Zealanders set up a rematch with Team USA thanks to a 5-2 series win over Sweden in Bermuda on Monday.

It will a rematch of the 2013 America's Cup clash when Team New Zealand squandered an 8-1 lead to lose by a single race.

"We're really happy to be going into the Cup Match and I feel we can bring it home to New Zealand," Peter Burling said.

"We feel like we've had an incredibly tough road to get here. We've gone through a lot of adversity with things like the capsize and some tough races here and there.


"One thing about this team is they've dug super deep to get us to this point and keep making the boat go faster, while fixing the things we'd broken."

The highly-anticipated America's Cup gets underway on Saturday.
