Jimmy Spithill finishes 14th in World Paddleboard Championship

To avoid the traffic on San Francisco's Embarcadero, Oracle Team USA skipper Jimmy Spithill would often use his stand-up paddleboard to get home from the team base. Now he's put all that effort to good use, finishing second Austrralian and 14th overall in the Moloka'i to Oahu paddleboard world championships.

Before the race Jimmy said: “This year I’m hoping to give more time in training for the crossing. Last year was exciting, but also a complete blur. I flew into Moloka’i late the night before the race and had to be back in San Francisco the next day for training with Oracle Team USA. If it wasn’t for Kai Lenny and his family helping with logistics, I’m not sure it would have happened. I really want to enjoy and experience all that the race and Hawai’i has to offer, it’s an amazing piece of water. I plan to get to Maui before the race and catch up with all the great friends I made following our visit after the America’s Cup. It’s going to be another awesome challenge, with some of the best athletes in the world – I can’t wait.”
