James Spithill and Russell Coutts practice on the eve of "Just the best" regatta
James Spithill and Russell Coutts, helmsman and CEO of BMW Oracle respectively, warmed up in practice races yesterday, on the eve of the "Just the best" exhibition regatta they start later today. The two star sailors race on Extreme 40 catamarans, in two teams named "Blue" and "White".
Here's a short and rather mediocre video from the practice race or better said, a 30-second glimpse of the two catamarans sailing in straight line, filmed from 500 meters away. They could have done better than that!!!
