For the first time since the 1960s, I am switching allegiances in the America’s Cup: There is a DeVos connection with the New York Yacht Club challenge for the 36th America’s Cup. I remember that Donald Trump supposedly wrote the Foreword to Dennis Conner’s The Art of Winning.
Difficult to mix American elite sailing with this kind of aberrant politics, especially since one of the NYYC’s representatives is Doug DeVos, brother-in-law of U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. It’s just too awful for contemplation ( https://www.newyorker.com/humor/borowitz-report/devos-defends-trump-would-a-moron-hire-me ).
We’re there for you, Team New Zealand and Takapuna!
