Tom Ehman: Team NZ's America's Cup win an "epic tour-de-force"

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Team New Zealand's America's Cup victory is being hailed as one of the most impressive feats in the sport's history. SAILING ILLUSTRATED editor Tom Ehman was part of Dennis Conner's team which lost the Auld Mug to Black Magic in 1995. Ehman told Daniel McHardy Conner wasn't as formidable as the Team USA machine with Larry Ellison, Russell Coutts and Jimmy Spithill - and Team New Zealand crushed them. He said it's more impressive than what Coutts and Peter Blake did to his team in '95. –Radio Sport NZ staff writing on their website Tuesday after a 15-minute interview with New Zealand's largest sports radio network soon after ETNZ defeated OTUSA in Bermuda on Monday. Listen to the full interview here.
