A proud day for all Kiwis
Accurate is proud to be the Measurement Supplier to Emirates Team New Zealand and last week our Directors had the privilege of attending the launch of the latest single hull `boat’ and with the hi-tech tilting foils it looks more like an aircraft. Philip Stickland commented ‘that It’s a work of art. It’s going to be an exciting ride.Grant Dalton asked for rain for the launch and he got his wish. I was surprised he wanted rain as it made for a cold and wet occasion, but when I asked - why? it turns out they are a superstitious lot and as it rained when they launched the first boat of the last series which was successful, they thought it would be a good omen. A great meeting of traditional Maori blessings, Champagne christening and a toast.
A privilege to be associated with this fantastic organisation.
