Emirates Team New Zealand. The only team to capsize during competition in Bermuda was the team that went home with the America's Cup! That big bearaway against Land Rover BAR was one of the risks that didn't pay off for the Kiwis. But pretty much all their other risky decisions did. Opting for cycling rather than grinding pedestals to generate power, using touch screens instead of ropes to control their wing rig and jib, putting a 26-year-old at the helm. Massive plaudits to the Kiwis for daring to be different, and blowing away their more conservative opposition.
