    New Zealand has had a tough introduction to Sail GP

    New Zealand has had a tough introduction to Sail GP


    The Kiwi team finished sixth, eighth and eighth in the opening three races in Bermuda, while trans-tasman rivals Australia won all three.

    New Zealand co-CEO and wing trimmer Blair Tuke says his team struggled to execute clean manoeuvres in top end winds.



    The final two races are on Monday morning before the title race.
