Bermuda - It's the 35th America's Cup ..... June 2017

Bermuda - We Cheated,  We Flew Here!..... 14 - 22 June 2017
This is scarier than watching the racing.

Very happy, won 4 from 4!!

We are in the NZ Herald

With our honoury kiwi cruiser mates Iain & Fiona
I have been very quiet on the blogging front, mainly because I only have had my tablet for months and it is so hard blogging on it.

I'm making a short effort as we have flown to Bermuda to support our America's Cup sailors in their bid to bring the Auld Mug back to New Zealand.

We arrived a week ago and had a superb 5 nights staying with cruiser friends Hannah & Paddy who actually own an island here, how cool is that!  Also staying were our British (temporarily ex cruiser) friends Fiona & Iain.

Interesting having a mix of Landrover BAR, Oracle & Emirates Team New Zealand  supporters all staying together, lots of banter and opinions and not a cross word.  Well done Team Cruisers!

We are now in our booked apartment close to Hamilton, the main town here on Bermuda.  The sun is shining every day and boy is it hot and humid.  We watched the America's Cup Youth Regatta, great fleet racing and full of action.  NZ squeezed into 2nd place by GB, even after a 2nd and 3 1sts, great action though.

We are having a great time on this island paradise,  but getting itchy feet waiting for the next round of racing to start.  GO ETNZ!
