Discussing :: Americas Cup - The Sport of Billionaires


Its one of the few sports where you can "buy" the win. Yes the catamarans are impressive however they need to choose a cheaper style of boat so that more countries can afford to compete.


Everyone will love it when Dean and the boys bring the cup home!!!!


Ok, Ok; I'll get out my red socks and join in the nationalistic fervour. But I won't forget that a lot of taxpayer dollars have been spent on a rich mans sport where us ordinary Joe Public people don't get a look in.


I still haven't gotten into it. Glad we are doing so well. Walked passed the yacht club a couple of times and it's full to the brim. Everyone at work is keeping up with progress during the day so there are constant updates. Am I being humbug about it?


It's amazing how the Americas Cup has gripped the nation and become essential viewing. With the scent of victory in the air, let's just celebrate that we are set to become world-beaters, regardless of the sport.


Today's races were sooo frustrating. Who ever heard of a time limit!!!


bring it back we are sick of delays. now back to nz with mono hulls!


Must admit I've become a bit more interested in this in the last week, but the weather delays are just pure frustrating!


We came so close, this will go down as one of the most memoriable sporting event in history!


The races were exciting, so what if they didn't bring it home? They got the L V cup and tried there hardest.Oracle had more money and technology. Team NZ were awesome!
