Container finished as 11th yacht overall, a respectable result but not enough to save the German team from one of their most disappointing results (fifth), their series undone by calamitous results in the third inshore race when Diva and Saudade both came to grief at the fourth weather mark, incurring significant points penalties. It was the year when New Zealand finally won the Cup, by following the approach of previous German teams that combined fast boats with sailing in a way that minimised risks, mistakes, protests and penalties.
