How about a new yachting competition?

Had a conversation this morning with someone who pointed out that if NZ had not taken part in this year’s America’s Cup, it would have been a debacle. And it looks clear under the rules set by the winner, we’re unlikely to be able to challenge successfully again.

So why not set up a new competition. Some rules that can’t be changed could include:

  • Crew can only compete for the country they were born in
  • A spending cap for teams
  • No modifications once the cup has begun

I reckon that might get many more challengers than the America’s Cup gets!
