Americas Cup Superstition

Sitting down after breakfast at Eden Park Bed and Breakfast I have just read about sailors superstitions. If you remember back to the first time Team New Zealand won the Americas Cup…..
In that series we won all the races except one. On that race Sir Peter Blake was not on the boat.
Yesterday we lost a race. This time Grant Dalton was not on the boat….
I wonder if we will see Grant on the boat for every race from here on……..
Personally I think we are doing an amazing job of bringing this cup home. But Americans hate to lose so we have to be brutal on the water. Go Team New Zealand.
