America's Cup 2013 Press Conference Day 5 - full coverage - The Near Capsize was the key subject of today's press conference.

Emirates Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker 'These boats are powerful and you have to sail them well. We made one mistake, it cost us the race, but we came very very close to much more than that.

'The tack was a little bit rushed and we missed the hydro (hydraulics), fortunately the guys kept grinding and the wing went thru not a split second too soon.

'By the far the closest we've been to putting the AC72 on its side. Another half degree and we were gone.'



Jimmy Spithill - coming up on them ' 'We were going to go for the hook and that did not look so good as we got closer and we bailed. I was surprised they did not go over.

'Over-all to come from behind upwind was very encouraging.

'We've been saying in house that we can win races.

'This is a key moment in the regatta. This is a team that does not give up.

'Today was a huge confidence builder. '
