Team New Zealand has taken the final of the Louis Vuitton Trophy Dubai with a 2-0 victory in the final over America's Cup holders BMW Oracle.

The win - the fourth of the five LV events held since February 2009 - caps a successful 2010 for the team, having previously won at Auckland and La Maddalena and also taking the MedCup season championship.

The Dubai regatta brings to an end the era of the IACC class yachts that have raced America's C up regattas for 20 years.
