Team New Zealand claimed the America's Cup for a third time after securing a 7-1 series victory over holders Oracle Team USA.

It was a remarkable turnaround for the Auckland-based syndicate after suffering a defeat at the last regatta in 2013, giving up an 8-1 lead over Oracle in the process.

Emirates Team New Zealand CEO Grant Dalton told Mike Hosking he can't explain how proud he is of his team.

"I think it just embodies who we are as New Zealander's really, we're tough and we're resilient and resourceful and really this team embodies that."
