With the America’s Cup looking like its going to return to better days, there is much mainstream media interest with the big guns jetting in to Auckland.

The very well known British Yachting journalist, Stuart Alexander, (the Vicar), who writes for the Independent was run down by a Kiwi 4WD near the Viaduct in Auckland yesterday.

At the Qingdao Olympics, we (the Sail-World team) had a wheel chair with a label The Fish, in place for the veteran Fisher, when he arrived in the Media Centre to work with us.

At the time Stuart thought it was a hoot and we all laughed over a few ales about it for night after night during the sailing competition.

Today Bob now assured that is his Pommy mate is OK, is looking forward to turning the tables. We expect to the Vicar in a wheelchair with the Fish, Bob Fisher on helm by the weekend. Now that will be a combination!

Over in Oz, the Audi Sydney Harbour regatta will run this Saturday and Sunday and we will have the latest from Sydney Harbour too!
