Rookie Sullivan Wants America’s Cup Badly

The crewman of the Emirates Team New Zealand, rookie Joseph Sullivan is a very happy man.


He is enjoying his stint with the Emirates New Zealand team. Sullivan from Picton was an Olympic rower and is not the crewman for Team New Zealand. He says that racing from one side of the sailing boat to the other side in tough weather and windy conditions is a tough task to master, but he is getting there.

Sullivan loves the time he has been spending with Team New Zealand crew members both on and off the waters. He is looking forward to grab hold of the Auld Mug and badly wants Team New Zealand to win the 35th edition of the America’s Cup in Bermuda. He says that it is a tough job and one has to be on his toes to move swiftly and safely from one side to the other side of the boat.

Sullivan is a professional athlete and he is the ‘Pride of Picton’ after winning the gold medal for New Zealand in the 2012 London Olympics. With the New Zealand boys just one week away from lifting the title and taking it back home, everyone in his hometown of Marlborough are cheering him and wishing him good luck.

Sullivan is very happy that the team was able to take a 3-0 lead over champions Oracle Team USA. The team is very positive and proud of its achievement so far. He says that he has put in a lot of effort on the boat and is very happy to be part of Team New Zealand.

Sullivan said that it is all because of the excellent team support and team effort that Team New Zealand is in this position. They are raring to hit the waters again and are not complacent.
