Spithill joins Luna Rossa

Spithill joins Luna Rossa”

After reports began leaking about Jimmy Spithill's America's Cup plans, Team Luna Rossa Challenge make it official today by announcing the 2-ime America's Cup winning skipper would be joining the Challenger of Record for the 36th America's Cup in 2021.

It's not clear whether Oracle Team USA's owner, tech billionaire Larry Ellison, will continue on in the America's Cup.

Spithill famously defended "The Auld Mug" with a remarkable comeback in San Francisco before crashing out to Team New Zealand's inspired challenge in Bermuda a year ago.

The Australian, who has competed in the America's Cup since 2000, was officially named as a new member of Luna Rossa overnight.

The 2013 victory was where he helped stage one of the biggest comebacks in sport, coming back from 8-1 down to defeat Team New Zealand.

Spithill helmed Luna Rossa in the 2007 challenger trials, reaching the finals before losing to Emirates Team New Zealand.

This was a serious Jimmy Spithill, not the jolly winder-up of "kiwi media" from the Challenger qualifier series. "The relationship between us and them won't falter via that he keeps his gob shut basically!"
