Dean Barker has quashed speculation
linking him with Oracle Racing, saying he wants
to stay put.
He said he had signed a letter of intent to remain
with Team NZ for the next cup regatta in Valencia
"Emirates Team New Zealand has moved to retain key
members, including myself, and I have signed a letter
of intent," he said in a statement.
"I have had approaches from a couple of teams",
he added. "But I would like to stay with Team
New Zealand, the team that has worked so hard since
2003 to restore some pride in New Zealand sailing
and regain the New Zealand public's confidence."
