Or perhaps the Southern Hemispheric equivalent -- like I said, I'm just guessing, not googling ... :-)

The "auld Mug" name goes back years, The Pommies most likely gave it that name as Auld = Old in scottish
But it has gone through a few reincarnations since then they race it in Funny little boats that can hit 70 knots so its a bit more exciting now

We could change the rules and make a change to waka's and paddles, that would stop uncle larry!!!!!

Yes, "the auld mug" is an affectionate phrase referring to the America's Cup, first won by the schooner America in a race around the Isle of Wight in 1851.

And rather handily, it looks.
Stupid question - why do they run all 7 races of the finals despite New Zealand winning the first five?

The first team to 7 points won the cup. They sailed 9 races, of which NZ won 8. NZ started with a 1-pt negative handicap because USA earned an advantage by winning the preliminary series.
