Oracle Team USA tactician says it's all to play for as qualifiers begin.

Oracle Team USA tactician Tom Slingsby believes the America’s Cup is wide open as the #event qualifiers get under way in Bermuda on Saturday.

Slingsby will be aiding helmsman James ‘Jimmy’ Spithill to call the shots as Oracle bid for a hat-trick of victories in the #event.

As defenders, the team are assured a place in the America’s Cup Match itself next month but will compete in the qualifiers in order to get in race trim.

And after some tight tussles in practice racing, Slingsby told the event’s official website: “I think it’s really up in the air. If you can win the start and sail cleanly without any mistakes, even with a slight speed disadvantage to another boat, you’re going to be hard to beat.”

Like many teams, Oracle have endured fluctuating fortunes in that recent spate of practice races.
