The New Zealand SailGP team has increased its lead in the series standings after a second place finish at the latest round in Bermuda.

Spain won the final to claim their second SailGP victory, with the New Zealand Black Foils second and Australia third.


With three rounds remaining Peter Burling and his crew have 77 points, Australia are on 67 and Spain 65.

The New Zealand team wasn't in a good space after a sixth place in the fourth race in Bermuda, how they they turned around the result for a first place in the fifth to qualify.

Spain and New Zealand pulled ahead early on from Australia but the kiwis couldn't drag in the lead held by the Spanish who have been a big improver this eason.

The next round is in Halifax, Canada in early June, followed by New York and then the grand final in San Francisco.

New Zealand has won four of the ten rounds so far this season with podium finishes in two others.
