Kim Dotcom offers to sponsor Team NZ in America's Cup

Millionaire internet mogul Kim Dotcom has said he will sponsor New Zealand's next entry into the America's Cup yacht race.

It follows uncertainty over whether the New Zealand government will continue to sponsor the nation's entry into the race, which was won by US sailing team Oracle.

Kim Dotcom told New Zealand's One News he would be able to make a "significant contribution", although he has not yet talked to Team New Zealand.
