Oracle Team USA and Team Australia, the Defender and Challenger of Record respectively, are currently in training/racing sessions on Sydney Harbour, sailing AC45's.

Both boats are skippered by Australians.

Oracle Team USA sailing team manager and tactician Tom Slingsby is enthusiastic about his team's first days on the harbour.

'It’s a great venue. Sailing AC45s in Sydney Harbour hasn’t been done before and it’s an amazing backdrop. We’ve had a couple of great days of training against the new Australian team and it’s been going well.'

Team Australia skipper Mathew Belcher says having an opportunity to train with Oracle Team USA will help the team get off to a running start.

'We’re slowly building our team up,' Belcher says. 'There 10 days with Oracle will really give us a chance to get as many sailors into the boat as possible and for myself to come into the team and find out exactly where we are.'

Slingsby says Oracle Team USA USA has three training camps scheduled over the coming months. 'It keeps the team active and sailing together and coming to a place like Sydney Harbour is pretty easy to get motivated for.'
