34th America's Cup Final - Emirates Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker Carlo Borlenghi/Luna Rossa
Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker and CEO Kevin Shoebridge talk to Newstalk ZB's Tony Veitch on several background issues to the Team's entry to the 35th America's Cup.

They covered the entry process for the Team, and whether they expect it to be accepted.

Also discussed is why they believe the Team was excluded from the recent Competitors Meeting in London, along with their thoughts on the previous one in Los Angeles.

They also give an update on the status of the New Zealand team including the size of its design team.

The internal Review process that the Team has undergone since the America's Cup is also discussed. It seems that there were mistakes made but about 12-18 months out from the America's cup.
