Kiwi’s Cup

“America’s Cup? Why, we call it the Kiwi’s Cup now!” An encounter with “a proper cocky Kiwi” sees Post writer Angus Phillips ruminate over this auld mug called the America’s Cup. This year’s competition sees New Zealanders sailing and working behind the scenes on all the top boats, bringing former team-mates face to face. Phillips: “It’s not easy being from a remote island of 4 million souls thousands of miles from anywhere when you have to compete in the global mix against the world’s superpowers […] But Kiwis, who have proved themselves the best sailors in the world, can crow and throw their little darts. They’ve earned the right.”
