    The laundry lady was wondering how so many of the sailors had brown stains in their underwear. Now she knows.

    “So if they win the cup, it is sullied.”

    I’d have to disagree. The cheating happened on AC45 boats a year before the Cup races in AC72s; it had no bearing on the AC72 competition at all. I don’t see how it is fair to penalize the AC72 boats for something that happened in a different series of races in different boats. Be that as it may, a penalty *was* assessed, so it’s not as though the deed went unpunished.

    Two of the 5 sanctioned sailors were Kiwis, BTW, not that that really matters.

It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. ❤❤❤❤ This is what I do, ➨➨➨➨➨➨➨➨BASS22.COM

    Teams are staffed with Aussie&Kiwi folks as ‘sailing’ definitely, predominantly is Kiwi/Aussie sports! Over a quarter of their Anglo population own sail boats in so-called Australia/NZ in Asia Pacific region, while all they do is emptying out all that abundant precious minerals from ginormous resourceful pillaged&plundered landmass, and selling them all back to Asia Pacific nations, while they hang around on the beaches & on their sailboats. So Wicked Smart, and its all in the family!

    New Zealand is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, with very nice, sincere, smart people. Lovely country.

    I am not really into sailing (despite my parents dragging me out on our sailboat on weekends). Now I appreciate it as being an extreme sport. Unreal watching the races. Shame NZ didn’t win although most of team USA is from NZ anyways..

    Always love being a Kiwi. My faith is not contingent upon us winning the cup (though, did I mention that we have won it twice – not bad for a country of 4.5 million). I wont mention the Lord of the Rings, or the All Blacks (Rugby World Champions). As I say, being a Kiwi is intrinsic.

    False. Only one Aussie in NZ’s boat and one ‘New Zealand/Australian’. On the other hand, Oracle only have 2 crew members from the US. Ridiculous

    I don’t understand why there are 72 Kiwi’s helping out OTUSA, is sport not about representing your country with a passion? Sailing is weird don’t quite understand how it all works..
