New Zealand claim victory in Dubai as thrilling Final ends with photo finish defeat of Aussies and Canada.

New Zealand picked up its second event win of Season 4 by claiming a dramatic, final-second victory over Australia and Canada in Dubai.

Peter Burling’s crew bounced back from a disappointing European leg of the campaign to triumph on Mina Rashid - picking up the win via the most dramatic of photo finishes.

Australia - skippered by Jimmy Spithill due to Tom Slingsby's absence - were beaten to the finish line by the tightest of margins, with Canada completing the podium after being hit with a late penalty that saw them drop behind their two rivals - despite actually crossing the finish line first.
