Former Oracle team member and 2017 Wild Oats XI crew Matt Mason turned the trash talking volume up to 11 in a recent interview with Auckland radio leader Newstalk ZB. He told host Matiu Workman that “Jimmy’s getting a little bit desperate for a win and he’s got it. But anyway, he can take that. That’s cool.”
Mason, who has a history of…let’s say… “creative” rules interpretation and has been dinged for breaking rules before, also was ‘dumbfounded’ by the same one-hour penalty that most of the world thinks was way too small. Dumbfounded, or just dumb?
Never one to back down from a war of words or otherwise, Spithill fired back in this 10 minute interview just before the New Year, and he had some choice words for Mason and the amateur-hour tactics aboard the mighty WOXI.
