The Americas Cup

The finals of the Americas Cup start today and everyone in NZ knows about it.
I would be interested in knowing if others even know what it is.

Yacht race? Don’t care.

The Americas what?

Seriously, most of us know about it and could care less about it. I realize it’s big to you Kiwis, but it’s 10th page news here at best. It’s just not our thing.

Yeah yacht race, and your comments pretty much confirm what I thought, dominates everything here lately. Race 1 lasted about 10 mins, Kiwi boat crapped out big time, gear failure.
