    A change of body shape has been a side effect of Simon van Velthooven's continued inclusion in Team New Zealand's onboard crew

    A change of body shape has been a side effect of Simon van Velthooven's continued inclusion in Team New Zealand's onboard crew


    van Velthooven, who was a cyclor at the 2017 America's Cup, has been confirmed as grinder for the next edition in 2021.

    He says with cyclors being outlawed for the regatta, he knew it would be tough to retain his place in the team.



    There's four new faces in the crew, including Louis Sinclair, Steven Ferguson, Marcus Hansen and Marius van der Pol.
