Revamped America's Cup now a major spectator sport | UTSanDiego.com: "The venue for the next America’s Cup race is being negotiated, but the 2013 winning skipper told a San Diego gathering his money is on a repeat in San Francisco Bay. “It’s a natural amphitheater,” said Oracle Team USA’s Jimmy Spithill, 34, the youngest skipper ever to win the America’s Cup, which he’s now won twice. He praised the switch this year to 72-foot-long catamarans, yachting’s version of Formula One race cars. He said it turned the competition into a true spectator sport — one which TV viewers, sailors or not, will watch without turning the channel. “It’s put the sport in an amazing place,” Spithill added. For the crew, however, it’s brutal and it’s relentless.”"
