And it's not a joke !


swissinfo.org...

Not bad for a small country lost in the alps and where the only water place is the lake leman !

Have to admit, that is pretty impressive for a team from a country that is "landlocked".

Crap.
They didn't win it they BOUGHT it.

They bought the best sailors from the last NZ team, and the best deisgners. The final race had 7 people on their boat, 5 of whom were NZers.

Its nothing to do with Switzerland, and everything to do with the power of money.

That cup needs to go back to australia.



First the new zealand skipper defects.

And then the mast breaks on the new zealand boat.

Its like watching a re-run of the 3-stooges.


Hell i'm still laughing.

Yeah NC posted here before me


Stupid Swiss bought all the New Zealand sailors, that's why THEY have it


This is about as bad as Kenya taking the gold in Down Hill Skiing with bought American Citizens.

Wow, I wasn't aware that the Swiss team was almost entirely made up of NZers. I guess its not like the Olympics where you represent the team depending on your citizenship.
