With the countdown on to the first day of racing at the Louis Vuitton America's Cup Qualifiers, ORACLE TEAM USA skipper Jimmy Spithill says his team is counting on support from Bermuda to push his team over the top.

“With just 17 days to go, you can feel the excitement ramping up around Bermuda. From taxi drivers, to people you pass on the street, everywhere you go these days there’s awareness, there’s excitement, there’s support.

“It’s massive to have that home support from the people here in Bermuda. Last time around it made a huge difference and I think it will be a key factor again.

"Bermuda feels like home to us, because it is like home to us. We’ve met so many great people here over the past two and a half years and we want to reward people here for the support they’ve shown by getting a good result.”
