Overboard crew couldn't stop Team New Zealand

TEAM New Zealand took out race one of the Louis Vuitton Cup against Italian outfit Luna Rossa off San Francisco.

The win comes despite losing two crewmen overboard in a nosedive rounding the fourth mark.

The Kiwis are heavily favoured to win the series and earn the right to take on defending champion Oracle in next month's America's Cup.
