AC45s, Oracle Racing 5: The Aussie Connection

The two best dinghy sailors on the planet, together onboard Oracle 5: Aussies Darren Bundock and tom Slingby (Laser World Champ).
Slingby had a nice experience two years ago at the Aussie A-Class Nats, so he has a good understanding on cats already.

Oracle has now their two boats helmed by Australian top sailors, wondering again why they can´t build a team of their own.
Watch out for 05 at San Diego, pressure on Spithill will rise even more now...
Coutts is out and the new O5 crew will be:
Darren Bundock – skipper & helmsman
Tom Slingsby – tactician
Murray Jones – wingsail trimmer
Simon Daubney – headsail trimmer
Simeon Tienpont – bowman
