This afternoon, Jimmy “Spittle” (thanks Gary) faces off against his only potential competition for the helm of the Oracle AC72 this afternoon.  He just so happens to be the most successful Olympic sailor in history, too, and he ran away with the first fleet race win yesterday.  He’s Big Ben, of course.  Then Nathan Outteridge, fresh off one of the best fleet performances of the day on Thursday, will get Russell Coutts’ old bones creaking with the help of Paul Cayard as tactician; and he’s even older than Coutts!  Then two more fleet races in beautiful San Fran, all starting around 4 PM (1600) PDT/7 PM EDT.  Here ya go.
