35th America's Cup, Oracle Team USA update from the Sydney training camp with Team Australia

From the following article on the Oracle/Team USA website:

ORACLE TEAM USA is in the midst of its second Sydney training camp.

As in March, some new sailors are getting a chance to strut their stuff, while the crew focuses on race practice against Team Australia.

“It’s going great so far. We have a few new guys here, who are fitting in really well,” said sailing team manager and helmsman Tom Slingsby.

“We just finished our fitness testing which has been pretty tough. We’ve seen a few of the boys crack, which is good to know, but it’s been great. We have a few more days to go and we’re going to get the most out of it."

Sailor Rome Kirby says he’s happy to be back out racing, with Team Australia pushing the defending America’s Cup champions.
