Team New Zealand has turned around a shocking second day to move into the outright lead in fleet racing in the America's Cup World Series in Naples.

The Dean Barker skippered crew has won both the fleet races today to overtake Oracle at the top of the standings.

It followed a horror day yesterday which included a crash in racing against Luna Rossa and two false starts in the fleet races.
