• After New Zealand won the America’s Cup in 1995, we hosted the yachting race in Auckland and won again in 1999. Then all the other countries poached our team members and we lost to Switzerland last year. Now, in three years, the Cup will be held in Switzerland. Except that its a land locked country so they won’t. The race is going to be off the coast of France instead.

• Auckland is geographically a huge city. You’ll need a car if you intend to stay here for any length of time because the public transport is all but non-existent. Because of this a huge car culture thrives in the city. On Friday nights car loads of Boy Racers drive up and down the main street doing donuts and wheel spins. It’s so bad that they recently passed the “Boy Racer” Act and now they can be arrested for disturbing the peace.
