The accountant beat Jimmy Spithill

Share on social media

ISAFlost to little-known accountant from New Zealand Sam Finnigan. True, the race was an unusual one.

«Kiwi» and Oracle Team USA skipper took turns trying to complete the course on Vodafone 's 60-foot trimaran , controlling the vessel remotely - using an app installed on a Samsung GALAXY Note 4.

As Finnigan has been using the simulator for quite some time, and Spithill is used to racing «the old-fashioned way», the professional yachtsman was expectedly inferior to the amateur. The New Zealander's time was 13 minutes and 13 seconds and the Australian's was 15 minutes and 14 seconds.
