Another dominant race win for Peter Burling and Emirates Team New Zealand in race nine of the America's Cup Match, presented by Louis Vuitton, gave the Kiwi team victory on the Great Sound in Bermuda, sparking wild celebrations on board their America's Cup Class (ACC) boat, and the team's support boats on the Great Sound.

Every single person at Team New Zealand has worked so hard for so long to achieve this and it's just an amazing team effort.

The America's Cup was last won by a team representing New Zealand back in 2000 and they are now the Defenders of the America's Cup for the 36th instalment of the competition for the oldest trophy in international sport.

It's been 14 years since the Auld Mug sat in the trophy cabinet at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron in Auckland. The next defence in New Zealand is likely to be in Auckland in four years time.
