Dalton Gets Personal

Grant Dalton stands on the precipice of wresting the America’s Cup from the grasp of a familiar foe. Nothing new there you might think. Except this time it’s different. This time it’s personal.

Dalton’s Team New Zealand (TNZ), having seen off the challenge of Luna Rossa in the Louis Vuitton Cup for the right to challenge for the Auld Mug, have scores – and scorelines – to settle when they take on the Swiss defender Alinghi in the best-of-nine series starting in Valencia tomorrow (June 23).
