    Sail GP is proving to be a steep learning curve for the new look New Zealand team

    Sail GP is proving to be a steep learning curve for the new look New Zealand team


    Peter Burling, Blair Tuke, Andy Maloney and Josh Junior return from their Olympic campaigns for the fourth leg of the series in Aarhus in Denmark this weekend.

    Burling and Tuke have only raced in the opening round in Bermuda while Maloney and Junior have competed in two events.

    Tuke says they are less experienced than their rivals but are learning fast.



    Racing starts tonight with New Zealand last on the ladder but just five points behind leaders Australia.
