If the money fails to be raised to support a local defence, then a string of foreign cities and countries are reported to be waiting in line to take Auckland's place.

The Irish Examiner reported in June that Cork, the Isle of Wight, China, Saudi Arabia, Valencia and Dubai have all been tipped as possible locations.
Wonder if the 500M$ offer from Rome Fiumicino for AC33 is still valid, too  :rolleyes: .

My, these guys are hopeless as carpetbaggers.

The solution is simple: make do with the government funding, simplify the Rule, refurbish Te Rehutai and concentrate spending on foils and electronics

And now this

New Zealand made a loss of $156 million from hosting the America's Cup event in March.

"It also details the organisation's frustrations in working with the public sector, with some processes described as "cumbersome and time consuming". ACE said it was required to attend 32 regular meetings, "most of which were unproductive and resulted in conflicting information and instructions being delivered to ACE". "Unfortunately, due to the number of people who attended and the fact that they were led by Auckland Unlimited who was not responsible for delivering the event, they became very unproductive, and required outcomes were not able to be achieved."

Still hard to believe they can't run a 33 race regatta on 100 million gift from the taxpayer.

America's Cup: Dalton pleased with outcome of massively compromised event


America’s Cup Event CEO Grant Dalton said, “Under the circumstances we are really pleased with the cost benefit analysis announced today. To have a cost benefit ratio of 0.85 for Auckland on an event that was massively compromised because of COVID-19 and the closed borders to international visitors, international media and superyachts.

Certainly the world changed significantly since we won the America’s Cup in 2017, and essentially the entire organisation of the event was flipped on its head one year out so even just the fact we managed to achieve putting on a successful major global sporting event in Auckland, while the majority of the world was locked down was a huge achievement.”

At the end of the report the Challenger of Record Luna Rossa and Event sponsor Prada comment on their relationship with the 36th America's Cup saying they did not feel that "COR and ACE were rarely in the same waka (boat). They called for a direct line between the COR, the Hosts (NZ Govt) and City would have been "very helpful indeed". And further "the treatment of COR by Panuku in relation to the AMG structures on Halsey Wharf left a sour taste in the mouths of COR"

Why should Team NZ "Make do with the government funding" when they may be in a position to do more than "Make do"

Just evidence of a Labour government using media spin to justify not helping TNZ 
A billionaires pissing match receiving social welfare funding is a sick joke.

As a card carrying Kiwi I would much rather see the appalling youth suicide rate which sadly here in Aotearoa we lead the world in deaths receive the public taxpayer funding that the baby bombing Emirates backed TNZ seek.

So Stars + Stripes is now the NYYC representative for AC37. What that means for American Magic, no one knows. Maybe they'll ride off into the sunset, or maybe they may move the entire operation to Pensacola where they spent a fair chunk of time training.

But if the rumours are true, and Alinghi are in for the next Cup, thats 2 strong teams to add to the current group.

That's not clear. Cantwell and Buckley are adding their persons and connections and assets to the NYYC syndicate. Read the NYYC press release.

When you live outside of New Zealand you find that our country doesn’t have a great reputation for technology.  The backward sheep farmer image still remains. I think the real value for NZ is that TNZ helps change this image. This is useful for our exporters in the high tech game. I see TNZ as a branding exercise for our fair country. 
 

the better our exports the better govt revenue which then can spent on youth suicide.

Both NZ and AUS actually have some tech advantages as well as disadvantages such as distance. Being more remote from tech hubs inspires innovative thinking, although many successful ideas get gobbled up by big companies.
