After a bright start Team New Zealand has faded at the Louis Vuitton America's Cup World Series in Oman.

After winning the first race on day one, New Zealand fell back into the fleet posting a fourth and dead-last finish in the other races for the day.

Skipper Glenn Ashby said consistency was something everyone struggled with.

"You know really, really up and down for everybody today, but tight racing, we haven't raced for three or four months now."

Team New Zealand are third overall, with Ben Ainslie's British team leading the way and Oracle Team USA second.
