Team NZ close to sinking
The clock is ticking for Team New
Zealand. Without an immediate cash
injection the syndicate are, in the
words of boss Grant Dalton, “gone by
the end of the month”.
However, Economic Development
Minister Steven Joyce has ruled out
any immediate cash injection for
Team New Zealand.
Desperate times call for desperate
measures, and so the syndicate
yesterday invited the media to their
Halsey Street base in a thinly-veiled
attempt to make one last plea to the
New Zealand taxpayer to keep the
doors of the syndicate open.
Worried the “hysteria” and
“negative rhetoric” around the
rules for the next America’s Cup
is hingeing efforts to secure
further bridging finance from the
Government, Dalton has stated his
case to the for the team’s continued
involvement in the event.
Although Dalton said the syndicate
has never been in a better position
from a sponsorship point of view,
the money he has lined up will not
kick in until February next year
once the venues for 35th America’s
Cup and qualifying series is known.
So Team New Zealand is reliant on
Government funds getting them
through to February.
At a media conference yesterday
afternoon, Mr Joyce ruled out any
immediate cash injection. He said he
wanted to see the sponsors front up
first, Newstalk ZB reported.
Dalton said he had private money
lined up to help tide the team over in
the meantime, but those donors were
not willing to hand over a cheque
until the Government was on board.
While privately Dalton says the
Government has been receptive to
continuing the investment in Team
NZ, it is ner vous about the public
backlash in election year. So it rests on
Dalton’s shoulders to try to convince
the New Zealand taxpayer it will be
money well spent.
But with Oracle Team USA widely
criticised for tabling a protocol
stacked in its favour, that task of
trying to convince New Zealanders
entering the 35th America’s Cup is
a worthwhile endeavour has become
all the more difficult. The general
reaction from New Zealand fans was
‘tell Oracle to go and get stuffed’.
That approach will not hurt Oracle;
it will hurt only Team New Zealand,
He claimed the protocol was not as
bad as some have been suggesting.
“It isn’t that bad. These guys aren’t
doing us any favours, let ’s be realistic
about that — it is the America’s Cup.
But it isn’t that bad,” he said.
Dalton pointed out the task facing
the team in the last campaign was
an even steeper mountain to climb.
In 2010 when the protocol for the
34th America’s Cup was released,
the extent of Dean Barker’s multi-
hull experience was sailing a Hobie
catamaran on his Christmas holidays;
it had no firm commitment from
sponsors; Team New Zealand did not
have a design team with multi-hull
expertise, while Oracle had just won
the America’s Cup in a giant wing-
“ We don’t see the odds being
stacked anything like they were last
“ We were starting from absolute
scratch, we’d never even seen a wing-
sail, let alone designed one. So the
project doesn’t worry us at all, there’s
nothing in the Protocol that scares us
off,” Dalton said.
“In many respects we’re strong than
we have ever been. We’re operational,
we’re sound, we’ve got a lot of sponsor
“ But we have a serious cash flow
issue and we have a New Zealand
public that is critically important to
Dalton also played up the
importance of yachting in this
country, pointing out New Zealand’s
long association with the America’s
Cup and the positive spin-off that
has had for the marine industry and
the Auckland waterfront.
“The first memory I have is Clive
Roberts and Chris Bouzaid —
Heligoland 1969, Rainbow II (in the
One Ton Cup) — it started there for
my generation and it’s grown through
Laurie Davidson, Bruce Farr, Peter
Blake. All that history brings us to
“ If we go, there ain’t no coming
“The start-up price of a team from
scratch is so astronomical that it will
never happen in this country.”

Root’s 200 puts England in control
and Kumar Sangakkara offered
stubborn resistance on the second
day of the opening test at Lord’s
after Joe Root put England in
control by hitting his maiden test
double ton overnight.
The 23-year-old Root, dropped
for the final Ashes test during
England’s 5-0 whitewash down
under, brought up his 200 with
a dab behind square after a well
compiled innings that featured 16
boundaries from 298 balls.
“Rooty, to go on and get 100, and
then today, the big hundred that
we talk about, the game changer,
is really important,” wicketkeeper
Matt Prior, who fell 14 runs short
of a century of his own, told a news
“A double hundred at Lord’s,
what a fantastic effort.”
Alastair Cook immediately
declared the innings on 575 for
nine once Root had reached his
milestone, leaving Sri Lanka
Silva and Dimuth
Karunaratne to negotiate a tricky
spell before tea.
Karunaratne, who successfully
overturned an lbw appeal off James
Anderson in the first over and
offered a chance to the slips soon
after, fell to Chris Jordan’s third ball
in test cricket when on 38, edging
to Prior behind the stumps.
Silva (62) and
Sangakkara (32) battled their way
through to 140 for one at the close,
although the former was lucky to
sur vive a caught behind appeal
off Stuart Broad on his way to
his fourth half-century, with the
third umpire ruling Prior had not
claimed the catch cleanly.
“I felt it carry,” Prior said. “In your
keeping gloves you’ve got rubber
tips and I felt the ball hit the rubber
tips. There is no doubt in my mind.”
Root, yet to nail a position in the
line-up during his short test career,
was offered good support by Jordan,
Broad and Liam Plunkett as the
host team looked to bat Sri Lanka
out of the match against a bowling
attack that lacked any real threat
after an early three-wicket blast on
the first morning of the test.
Root ’s 200 beat his previous
best of 180, also scored at Lord’s
against Australia last year, and
helped rescue his side after it was
struggling at 120 for four soon after
lunch on the first day.
Having had little luck tossing the
ball up late on the opening day, Sri
Lanka’s bowlers set out to bombard
Root and Prior, also returning after
injury and being dropped against
Australia, with short balls on a
pitch that appears set to become
easier to bat on as the match
Prior, who passed 4000 test runs
early in the day, never looked
entirely comfortable, eventually
falling for 86 when he could only
fend a well-directed bouncer from
Shaminda Eranga to Silva at
for ward short-leg, with the pair
having put on 171 runs for the
Jordan, who along with Sam
Robson and Moeen Ali is making
his test debut, struck a breezy 19
before becoming Eranga’s third
victim, while fellow fast bowlers
Broad (47) and Plunkett (39)
also ticked the total along to help
England to their highest score
against Sri Lanka, for whom
Nuwan Pradeep finished with a
career-best haul of four wickets.
“ We’re not going to blast anyone
out on that wicket, we’re going to
have to build pressure, get control
wickets that way,” Prior added.
Sri Lanka’s Karunaratne was
confident his side could avoid the
follow-on and then build a score
to put pressure back on England,
especially with the experienced
Sangakkara at the crease and
Mahela Jayawardene, who has twice
scored centuries at Lord’s, to come.
“ Kaushal and Kumar batted very
well so I think they can go on
tomorrow,” he said.
“ I think 360 is a gettable score and
we can avoid the follow on as well.”
Pinehurst (North Carolina)
Keegan Bradley had the best
seat in the house to watch Martin
Kaymer take the US Open by the
scruff of its neck overnight, and he
described the German as being “as
dialed in as I’ve seen”.
American Bradley, who was
grouped with Kaymer for the first
two rounds at Pinehurst, looked on
in awe as his playing partner fired
successive scores of five-under-par
65 on a challenging layout to post a
record low total in the year’s second
“He’s playing so good, it ’s fun
to watch,” former major winner
Bradley told reporters after carding
a one-under 69 to join five other
players in an early share of second
place, a staggering eight shots
“I played well as well, but it was
fun watching him hit every fairway,
every green and make every putt, it
was pretty awesome. He’s dialed in.
He’s as dialed in as I’ve seen.”
Kaymer, who clinched his first
major title in a play-off for the 2010
PGA Championship at Whistling
Straits, hit 12 of 14 fair ways
and reached 15 of 18 greens in
regulation during the second round
on a layout where danger lurks on
The German’s 10-under aggregate
of 130 eclipsed the tournament ’s
previous record low after 36
holes, a total of 131 set by Rory
McIlroy in the 2011 US Open at
“ He’s just hitting the ball in the
fairway on every hole and that ’s
how you score,” Bradley, who won
his only major crown as a PGA
Tour rookie at the 2011 PGA
Championship where he edged out
fellow American Jason D ufner in a
“ If you hit the ball in the fairway,
you can attack a lot of these pins
and these greens. When you get
off the fairway into the waste area,
that ’s when it can get dicey.
“ He’s just very steady. He doesn’t
seem to get too up and too down.
That ’s a pretty good combination
for the US Open.”
Asked whether Kaymer’s huge
36-hole lead would change his own
strategy heading into the weekend,
Bradley replied: “No, it doesn’t
because the course is too hard. You
just got to stick with the game plan.
“There’s no place to force
anything. It’s just similar to
Augusta (National) in that there’s a
(possible) double (bogey) on every
hole if you’re not careful, so stick to
the game plan.
“ We’ve got to see what happens
tomorrow, but the back nine on
Sunday is where it all kind of
happens. Steady golf out here is
going to be tough. You need to go
out there tomorrow, make a bunch
of pars and you never know what ’s
going to happen.” — Reuters
