The accountant will try to outrun Jimmy Spithill

Share on social media

The twenty-two-year-old New Zealand accountant has challenged Jimmy Spithill. Sam Finnigan will fight the year's best yachtsman one-on-one.

The David and Goliath battle will be held in a very unusual way: Team Oracle skipper and accountant will try to show the best time, sitting in a helicopter and using a Samsung GALAXY Note 4 phone as the only means of control of the giant boat - a 60-foot trimaran of TeamVodafone.

The split start race is hosted and sponsored by Vodafone and will take place on November 17, 18, 19 or 20 (weather dependent) near Hauraki Bay.
