“It was a thrill to see first hand the best sailors and fastest boats. This is the next generation of innovative, competitive sailing. I’m looking forward to showcasing Rhode Island as the host city for the Americas’s Cup World Series on national television during the finals on Sunday.”—Rhode Island Governor Lincoln D Chafee
Spithill: We haven’t actually raced Terry in the match racing since Portugal, that’s the last time we went head-to-head. So we’re excited to go against them. They’ve been on form in the match racing and I’m looking forward to a good battle.
Coutts: The last time I raced Chris Draper in a match race was in Cascais and he beat me (with Team Korea). So I’m looking to reverse that today.
