As a long time fan of Emirates Team New Zealand and the America's Cup, Mike was all aboard when he heard the team was looking for extra grinders. Recognizing what a life changing opportunity this could be, he significantly reduced his work commitments and trained 2-3 times a day for the six weeks leading into his final trial with the team. This is Mike's first participation at the America's Cup.
