No surprise

Apparently the Dubai backers of the "New Zealand" Americas Cup challenge are talking about holding the next series in Dubai, should they win the cup (and thus the hosting rights, which sensibly go to the winner).

I'm not surprised at all. The AC teams are not national rep teams like the ABs - they are the private enterprises of very wealthy people and will attach to whichever country is convenient.

Question is, if they do this will Dave Dobbyn have to start singing "Loyal" in Arabic - which, per Google, would make it موالي.
