The cup resides at the club which won the cup.  The only loophole is that RNZYS could accept a challenge from Dalts club and then lose that challenge.  But the challenging club would have to meet the deed of gift requirements as Allinghi found out when they tried to create a bogus challenging club and got sued in NY court.
If I correctly understand what you mean that would require:

1) Dalts to find another YC in another country meeting the requirements

2) Be able to find enough money to challenge without the help of the NZ taxpayers

3) Be accepted as a challenger

4) Survive possible legal firestorm

5) Win the next AC

That makes a lot of "if".

You know this would never fly....  The lawyer would be all over this...

If ETNZ wants to try this kind of crap then they are a dead team sailing...
Stop yakking through your butt hole and read the Deed. Conspiracy addiction must be a cultural thing with you muppets..

It'll not only fly, it's perfectly legal under the Deed!! But it'll never happen...

Quite possible!

IF           LR get the jump on NZ at the Start Line,
AND      win the First Cross,
AND      then Cover relentlessly...

THEN    NZ will be in a spot of bother.

I think. :unsure:
7 to 1 to NZ kiwis will have the same hieght and be 3 kn faster in any direction

6: never ever come back to NZ because you & the crew will go down as probably the most hated Cunty PoS in NZ sporting history.

This sort of self-dealing was explicitly ruled unacceptable in GGYC vs SNG.

Thanks Weta for the smoking shots.  Pretty damned impressive, and regarding the delay, dare I say DARN IT!  Actually muttering some stronger words under my breath.  Had the first race on my calendar for a loooonnnnggg time.
