On the brink of defeat at the 34th America’s Cup in San Francisco, USA, ORACLE TEAM USA skipper and helmsman James Spithill led his team to one of the greatest comebacks in sporting history.

ORACLE TEAM USA trailed Emirates Team New Zealand 8-1 in the first to nine battle for the Auld Mug, but even though ORACLE were down, they weren’t out.

The youngest helm to ever compete in the America’s Cup, Spithill’s debut came in 2000 at the age of 20. Fourteen years on and with the 2010 victory under his belt, experience and leadership came to the fore.

Taking it race by race, piece by piece, Spithill lead ORACLE TEAM USA on a monumental uphill struggle until the score was levelled at 8 apiece and the 34th America’s Cup entered a winner takes all final bout.

With the eyes of the world glued to San Francisco Bay Spithill took an early lead in the decider. With increasingly devastating upwind speed and consistent downwind performance, ORACLE TEAM USA were untouchable, crossing the finish line 44 seconds ahead of their rivals.
