I have ordered shirts from the New Zealand site often over the years from here in Canada - never a problem. I also order from Europe and have had the same positive experience. Sometimes the customs get hold of it and it can cost you a few extra bucks but always worth it to have something unique. Quality has always been good

Why would you want gear from a boat/program you have no direct involvement with, still an old believer if you hav'nt sailed or worked on the boat you shouldn't wear the gear.

Unless your female and did all the right things to earn the shirt

Its not a team member polo or anything like that... Its to show your support for who you are supporting. I totally agree with you on a smaller scale with boats and for all programs and regattas, but this is the same as buying a jersey for a pro sports team you like.

most people have some type of pro sports team hat, shirt, sticker on there car window and all they do is watch the team on TV, I would rather have a regatta shirt (and I have a lot of them from races I have done) then a baseball cap from some team of whiny millionares.

That is a stupid statement for all the obvious reasons, as others have stated. Also, my friends are smart enough to know that I haven't been away down in New Zealand working on "the boat".

If you DO want a shirt or whatever one piece of advice. European sizes run one size smaller than US sizes, so if you wear a large shirt order an XL from Europe. At least that has been my experience when traveling. I guess that it has something to do with all Americans being lard asses.
