James Spithill (AUS/USA)

 Nomination
It is a measure of the solid strengths of the One World challenge that Peter Gilmour felt comfortable, not only to. Ai hand over the helm in Round 1 of the Louis Vuitton Cup, but also to occasionally stay off the boat altogether. That said, Spithill has risen to the task and taken full benefit of the opportunity originally provided to him and others in the One World camp by Sid Fischer's lowbudget, youth-centred challenge in 2000
 Why they won
Don't go looking for ajob in Italia, Mr Spithill, but you saw off Mr Bertelli 65:35! OneWorld's helm has been among the stars of the show in Auckland, further testament to the depths of skill that skipper Peter Gilmour continues to hone.
