Kiwis from all walks of life and all over the country are in San Francisco, celebrating team New Zealand winning race after race at the Americas Cup.
Bump into kiwis as we roll around pier 29 where its all happening and the Moa Bar on the waterfront where NZ has setup home.
We bump into legendary kiwi entrepreneurs like Rod Drury founder of Xero, Scott Houston of Green Button ex Weta, waiwera water, gower smith of zoom systems, its a good piece of NZ right in the middle of San Fran.
New Zealand is being called “The People’s Boat” at this year’s America’s Cup.
People all around San Francisco were interviewed and it seems that support for the Kiwis is strong from people from San Francisco, Italy, United Kingdom, and all around the world. Not just fellow Kiwis.
Reasons for supporting “The People’s Boat” vary, but the name itself and the local San Francisco support stems from the fact unlike the other teams who are bankrolled by an individual billionaire, New Zealand is party funded by the people of New Zealand in the form of government sponsorship (i.e. tax payer money), as well as a family of sponsors.
