Sailing Illustrated editor Tom Ehman was part of Dennis Conner's team which lost the Auld Mug to Black Magic in 1995.

Ehman told Daniel McHardy Conner wasn't as formidable as the Team USA machine with Larry Ellison, Russell Coutts and Jimmy Spithill - and Team New Zealand crushed them.

He said it's more impressive than what Coutts and Peter Blake did to his team in '95.
