Burling becomes sailing's most unassuming superstar

- HAMILTON, Bermuda: Peter Burling emerged as a sailing superstar as he coolly helmed New Zealand to victory in the 35th America's Cup. Not that Burling himself would ever say so. "We're just blown away by what we've been able to achieve out here today," Burling said. "I think for ourselves it's just sinking in. "As a Kiwi, growing up in New Zealand racing for the America's Cup and winning the America's Cup and then also losing the America's Cup, to be able to come here to Bermuda and be part of an incredibly special team and bring that trophy back home that's something that I'll remember for the rest of my life

America's Cup: The cat that came back in Bermuda

- Pitchpoled into the whipped up waters of Bermuda's Great Sound, Team New Zealand's America's Cup challenge quite literally teetered on the brink. It's hard to know what was running through the mind of the preternaturally composed helmsman Peter Burling as he sat suspended in the airborne starboard hull after Wednesday's shocking capsize, but it was unlikely to have been, "I wonder who we'll face in the final?" Just 48 hours after the near-catastrophic crash, Emirates Team New Zealand secured their place in the America's Cup challenger final with a courageous show of sailing
