The rags-to-riches story of the youngest ever skipper to win the America's Cup, and one of sailing's most legendary personalities.

About the Author

Jimmy Spithill is 38, but is already a two-time winner of the America's Cup and one of the most famous sailors in the world. In 2013 he led his team to what the Wall Street Journal called 'one of the greatest comebacks in sports history'. OracleTeam USA was down 8-1, before rallying for eight consecutive wins to defeat Emirates Team New Zealand 9-8. When he's not training the team, Spithill takes a keen interest in flying - he's flown with the Blue Angels, the Red Bull Flying Bulls and holds his private pilot license. He is also an accomplished amateur boxer and has completed two Molokai to Oahu stand-up paddle crossings. @JSpithhill

Reviews

Fascinating behind the scenes insight during the most disruptive period in the event's modern history... Spithill also uses the book to even the score with critics, question authority, opine on parenthood, and teach the tenets of team. * Scuttlebutt Sailing News *
A very interesting book and a worthwhile read - particularly to understand how he achieved what he has by coming through a very different path to others in the 35th America's Cup. * Sail-World New Zealand *
an inside look into the making of a life of competitive sailing * Boat International *
a breathtaking ride for anyone interested in the AC * Sailing Today *
Breaks open the closed world of the America's Cup and gives unprecedented insight into the mind of an extremely focused man at the pinnacle of his sport. Jimmy speaks with honesty about this year's event and we get an inside look at the challenges he faced as he defended the Cup. * All at Sea *
