Jimmy Spithill Podcast With The Pros

Two times America’s Cup-winning skipper Jimmy Spithill joined Shirley Robertson earlier this year, as the pair settle down for an extended two-part podcast interview ahead of the first round of the America’s Cup World Series in Sardinia.

Spithill has long been a fixture in the America’s Cup scene, having first led the Australian entry to the 2000 Cup in Auckland, as skipper of Young Australia. He’s skippered in every Cup since, winning for the first time in 2010 at the wheel of Larry Ellison’s BMW Oracle Racing. That first win, helming the giant 90-foot trimaran, secured his spot as the Cup’s youngest ever winning skipper.

In 2013 a successful defence of the Cup in San Francisco saw Spithill lead the unlikely comeback against a New Zealand Team that was, at 8-1 up, just one race win away from reclaiming the oldest trophy in world sport. Having then lost the defence of the next Cup in Bermuda in 2017, Spithill is now in a key role at the long-established Italian team, Luna Rosa.
