don't mention the S....... word to new zealanders its a sore =3D
point........(sailing)

cast your mind back about 7 years ago

the NZ govt found about 30 kiwis who knew more than just sheep farming

it seems these 30 odd blokes could steer a wind powered oversized bath =
=3D
tub around a harbour.

and they did it well.

they won this thing called the "americas cup" (should be renamed)

3 years later they defended it again whilst sailing their new design =
=3D
bathtub in auckland harbour.

NZ went wild...

then in 2002 the 30 good bathtub pilots had been bought by a swiss =3D
billionaire so the NZ govt had to find 30 more kiwis than knew anything =
=3D
other than the back end of a sheep.

the entire country now HATED the original bathtub team.

60 kiwis is a large percentage of the remaining population still in NZ =
=3D
so the new 30 weren't as good at big bathtub steering.

then came the big final in 2003 and the wind dissapeared....  NZ =3D
wouldn't play big bathtubs with the swiss for a few days..


the winds finally arrived.....

the NZ mast snapped and the swiss took the americas cup back to the =3D
swiss yachtclub?!???? :oS   ( do the swiss have a yacht club? where =
will =3D
they hold the defence in 3 years?

roly
