Team New Zealand were welcomed back to Aotearoa today with a traditional Maori welcome during the America's Cup victory parade in downtown Auckland.

Helmsman Peter Burling and chief executive Grant Dalton were at the front of the contingent of Team NZ sailors and they respectfully observed a wero, haka and karanga.

Burling in particular looked mighty pleased holding to Auld Mug.

The team are being feted after last month beating Oracle to win the America's Cup, held in Bermuda.

Make no mistake, the America's Cup is definitely ours once again.
