Team New Zealand has won the MedCup regatta at Cartagena in Spain finishing a comfortable 10 points ahead of Argentina's Matador after three races on the final day withTeamOrigin third.

NZL 380 started well, taking second place in the first race but was disqualified in the second race after finishing fourth.

However Dean Barker and crew shrugged off the port-starboard incident with Quantum Racing to win the last race.

Barker says they sailed much better than they did in Barcelona and had no bad races.
