    A week ago NZ had a better boat, skipper and crew . Or so we were led to believe. Whats happened


    This could be NZ's last ever entry into America's cup, no more Govt funding .
    I would be interested in how much in total, NZ govt & Ak City council have put into this, over all the years .

    But, there have been some great races . . . and the fat lady is still mute.

    What if it was agreed that NZ was so far ahead that they had already won back when it was 8 - 1 or whatever then it was decided to stretch out the competition by a few more races with NZ throwing everyone only to "win" the last one.

    Think of all the extra millions that scenario would produce.
