Here is a link to NTV’s Jodi Cooke's excellent coverage of America’s Cup-Winning Skipper, James Spithill's recent visit to St. John's, NL and his support for our NL 49er Team and youth sailing.

Australian yachtsman James Spithill led Oracle Team USA to a stunning come-from-behind victory in this year’s America’s Cup. The world-renowned sailor paid a visit to the Royal Newfoundland Yacht Club this weekend.
It was nice to see him give support to Jon Ladha & Daniel Inkpen.
On the video from 3:07 to 4:31, there is coverage of them sailing their 49er on Quidi Vidi lake.
