I know, I know, crowing time [Razz] [Big Grin]

Been following the yatching, the America's Cup, ok the Louis Vuitton Cup whose winner gets the right to try are wrest the America's Cup from the holders.

Well this weekend, my local yatching club (Société Nautique de Genève) won the cup and now will face Team New Zealand for the America's Cup.
They beat Oracle (i.e. Larry Ellison's boat) by a margin of 5 victories to 1.
Bring on the Kiwis now.

Hehe, on tv yesterday, the owner of the boat, who is also one of the team, said that if they one the cup they would take it to the top of the Matterhorn, now that I want to see [Big Grin]

Damn Alinghi and you cocky Swiss! Oracle was doing fairly badly... some bad choices, et cetera.

Good luck agains the Kiwis though... they're tough!
