    Written by Suzanne McFadden - Carolijn Brouwer plans to become the first woman to drive an America’s Cup challenger boat in the 168-year history of the race.

    She tells Suzanne McFadden from www.newsroom.co.nz why helming the first Dutch entry, and coming back to Auckland in 2021, means so much to her.

    Carolijn Brouwer knows that, floating somewhere in the world wide web, there’s a photo of her holding the America’s Cup aloft on the edge of the Waitemata Harbour. The caption reads: “Dreams never die."

    The photo was taken back in 2003, on the day that Swiss team Alinghi wrested the world’s oldest sporting trophy from Team New Zealand.

A high angle shot, looking down on a giant 72 foot red and black Emirates Team New Zealand catamaran seemingly flying above the waters of the Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour.

    Debate raged:
    “OMG photoshopped of course,”

    “Can't be foiling - anyone can see from that picture they're simply launched off a wave.” ...
