Dean Barker has strengthened his links to the New York Yacht Club's America's Cup challenge with confirmation he will be at the helm of their Congressional Cup and TP52 Super Series campaigns this year.

Barker will be at the wheel with NYYC challenge boss Terry Hutchinson calling tactics alongside him.

The TP52 Super Series, the world's premier monohull racing environment, confirmed Barker's involvement with Quantum Racing, declaring: "Welcome back Deano".
