New Zealand team boss Grant Dalton has offered to unlock his team’s resources to help the American Magic get their damaged AC75 back in the water.
The ship, named the Patriot, had a large hole in its hull as a result of a tumbling at the end of a Prada Cup race on Sunday afternoon, which submerged the ship and nearly sank.
The New Zealand team, as well as fellow Ineos Cup syndicates Team England and Luna Rossa, and local emergency services are on hand to help America keep the ship afloat.
Speaking to the media on Monday, American Magic captain Terry Hutchinson expressed his gratitude to the other teams, in particular Defender.
“I think the Dalts quote is ‘whatever you need, we have it for you’,” said Hutchinson.
“From a shipbuilding perspective, defenders are in the strongest position because we are in their hometown. They are halting part of their program so that there are lots of people available to help us and them straight away. [Team New Zealand] contact us. “
While members of all the syndicates helped save the ship, members of the New Zealand Team stayed with the American Magic crew on their nearly three-hour journey back to base from Hauraki Bay off the coast of Milford, and took pizza as their slow pace. having to make the return journey meant they wouldn’t be ashore until after 10 p.m.
Hutchinson described it as “the element of sportsmanship which is the highest level”.
“We have great support from all the teams… everyone has offered their services to bring the Patriots back to the water. As competitors, most of the time we argue with each other about things that are only about sailboat racing, we argue to make our point. “But today you can’t find more sportsmanship or a more generous team that we have around us,” said Hutchinson.
“With all the sincerity in the world, they gave almost all the facilities for us to use to rebuild the Patriot.”
Asked about their dinner options, Hutchinson joked that the Kiwi crew could get into trouble with a McDonald’s sponsor.
“I’m sure they stole from McDonald’s for not bringing us Big Macs and a quarter pounders, but we specifically asked for pizza so I don’t want them to get into trouble!”

They are two of the most scandal-prone people in the entertainment industry, and a few months ago, their marriage looked like a mess.
While Kim and Kanye’s celebratory season look shining recently may have made their relationship look bad for life, the scandal that raged on Twitter in July opened wide their marriage, with drama playing out in front of the world.
And in the middle of it all is a photo from two years ago.
PHOTOS THAT STARTED IT ALL
A photo of Kim meeting with rapper Meek Mill to discuss prison reform in 2018 at a Los Angeles hotel was found during Kanye’s infamous series of tweets earlier this year.
West shocked fans when he claimed he had been “trying to divorce” from Kim since the meeting at Waldorf in Beverly Hills, suggesting something unwanted was happening and he was “out of line”.
She wrote: “Meek is my man and respect. That’s my dog Kim out of line. I’m worth 5 billion dollars and more through Christ. But you won’t listen to MJ and now you will believe them?”
The photo that emerged as a result of the fiery tweet showed Kim, 40, and the 33-year-old rapper, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, joining philanthropist Clara Wu at the rooftop restaurant, where they are believed to have discussed prison reform. – reasons they support passionately.
In response to Kanye’s wild claims, Mill wrote: “Sh ** is cappp cmon,” which is slang for lies.
Later, when the photo appeared, Mill added to the following: “Being in the wrong environment and the wrong people will make you forget your grades! Stay focused.”
It came after Kim received smoldering praise from Mill last year, with the rapper calling him “friend” and praising him for his work on prison reform.
Among a series of now deleted tweets, Kanye, 43, lashed out at Kim and his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, claiming they tried to “lock me up”.
It came after the rapper held a presidential campaign rally in North Carolina where he shared intimate details about him and the reality star’s decision not to abort their daughter North.
During an emotional rally, West broke down in tears as he talked about how he and his wife were considering ending the pregnancy.
In another tweet, West claimed his wife tried to fly a doctor to Wyoming to “lock me up like Get Out” because she cried about “saving” her daughter North’s life.
The film Get Out, which is compared to his life by West, is about an African American man who is taken to the family home of his white girlfriend and reveals a series of disturbing details about them.
The majority of West’s tweets were quickly deleted but only 24 hours later he let go of his family again.
He then apologized to his wife.
“I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for announcing something of a personal nature,” he wrote. “I didn’t protect her like she protected me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. I’m sorry. Thank you for always being there for me.”
Kardashian-West broke her silence about her husband’s mental health shortly after her nagging, posting a statement to Instagram in which she defended the rapper and mentioned bipolar disorder.
“Anyone who has this or has had a loved one in their life who has done it, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand,” he wrote.
“I’ve never spoken publicly about how this affects us at home because I really protect our children and Kanye’s right to privacy regarding his health.”
But Kardashian said she felt compelled to speak up because of “mental health stigma and misconceptions.”
“Those who understand mental illness or compulsive behavior know that families are helpless unless members are minors,” he continued.
“People who are unconscious or distant from this experience can be judgmental and don’t understand that the individual himself must be involved in the process of getting help no matter how hard the family tries.”
Reports from December 13th recently suggest all is still not well with the pair, despite their efforts to put a united front in place.
According to the New York Post, the couple may still be together, but “lead separate lives”.
“Kim has a job and a project that is important to him, and Kanye has it,” a source told People. “Their lives don’t overlap much.”
“Kim looks happy,” and “very focused on work and goals,” they added.
“He firmly believes he can make a difference in terms of prison reform. This is his passion. His family is very proud of him.”
