Jimmy Spithill: “To me, nothing else matters more than winning this next Cup.”

The premiere episode of America’s Cup Uncovered, the weekly news magazine showcasing the America’s Cup.
The episode includes a day in the life of ORACLE Racing skipper Jimmy Spithill. In the feature he explains his motivation behind his personal goal of winning the America’s Cup.

“When I was 3 Australia II won,” said Spithill, who grew up in Pittwater, north of Sydney. “Two of my neighbors, Colin Beashel and Rob Brown, were part of Australia II. When Australia II won, all the people in the bay – it was just a small community, no roads, you had to get there by boat – all got together and obviously it was just a long party at the Beashels following the victory.

“When you’re a young kid seeing that, growing up, you go to school by boat, you naturally know that’s what you want to do. I wanted to be one of those guys that won the America’s Cup,” Spithill said.
“To me, nothing else matters more than winning this next Cup.”
The 5-minute feature on Spithill begins at about the 13-minute mark.
