Early Life: Source Wikipedia


Early 2015 saw Grant Dalton offer Barker a shore based position in order to make room for a new skipper, Peter Burling. Barker refused to take this position and accepted the offer to become CEO and Skipper of a newly formed Japanese syndicate.

On May 21, 2015, Barker was announced as CEO and skipper of the Japanese challenger, Softbank Team Japan.


In August 2013 Barker once again skippered Emirates Team New Zealand to victory in the 2013 Louis Vuitton Cup— beating the Italian Luna Rossa Challenge team 7–1 in the final. He set a Louis Vuitton/America’s Cup speed record in race #7 of 47 knots (87 km/h; 54 mph).

Barker and Team ETNZ then went on to Challenge Americas Team Oracle in the 2013 Americas Cup Final and went on to lose the final. ETNZ at one point during the final series had won 6 of the first 7 races ultimately going on to lose by a score of 9–8. The largest comeback in Americas Cup history. A rift started to emerge between Barker and Team ETNZ’s CEO Grant Dalton.

Through 20 September 2013, Dean Barker’s record as helmsman in America’s Cup Finals stands at 11–15. With only one more race win needed for Emirates Team New Zealand to secure the Cup, Dean Barker will need one more America’s Cup series to break even.


The renamed Emirates Team New Zealand, with Barker as skipper and helmsman, was one of the challengers for the 2007 Valencia America’s Cup. Barker started Team New Zealand’s quest to take the Cup back to New Zealand by winning the challengers’ 2007 Louis Vuitton Cup— beating the Italian Luna Rossa Challenge team 5–0 in the final after the previous elimination of the other 9 challengers. This was the first time that the Louis Vuitton Cup had ever been won without a race loss to the opponent. This gave Emirates Team New Zealand and Barker the opportunity to race the Swiss challenger Alinghi for the 32nd America’s Cup.

By winning Race 2 of the 2007 America’s Cup against the Defender Alinghi, Emirates Team New Zealand ensured that the scoreline in the America’s Cup would not show a clean sweep victory for the first time in fifteen years. Many experts believed Emirates Team New Zealand had a good chance of winning but finished the 2007 America’s Cup with a 2–5 race defeat.

Overall the 2007 America’s Cup racing was close with the final race won by Alinghi, skippered by fellow New Zealander Brad Butterworth, with a winning delta of 1 second.

Barker has participated in two defences and two challenges for the America’s Cup. After the 2007 event, his record as helmsman in Finals was 3 wins to 10 defeats.


In the 2003 Americas Cup, the Swiss boat Alinghi defeated Team New Zealand in a 5–0 series. The subsequent internal team review left Barker’s reputation intact and he was selected as skipper and helmsman for the 2007 challenge.


Team New Zealand went on to successfully defend the 2000 Cup 5–0, with Coutts relinquishing his normal helming role to Barker in the last race. After the 2000 cup there were multiple defections to other syndicates, most notably Coutts and Brad Butterworth to Alinghi and as a result Barker became skipper.


Barker’s first introduction to the America’s Cup was in 1995 when Russell Coutts invited him to train with Team New Zealand. He opted for an Olympic campaign rather than to travel to San Diego. Although he was not involved in the successful challenge, he became a permanent member of the cup defense team once the cup was in Auckland.
