'Winning finals is the only thing that matters' - Spithill's Super Bowl Strategy

Jimmy Spithill is using the Super Bowl for inspiration as he plots success for the United States in SailGP's Grand Final next month.

The US have already qualified for the Season 2 Championship decider, alongside Australia, and they will be joined by a third team after two days' worth of racing in San Francisco on 26-27 March.

Spithill's US team have booked their place in the Grand Final despite not winning a single event so far in Season 2, and consistency has proven their biggest strength - claiming five podium finishes at just seven events.

And the Sydney-born Driver is well aware the only important thing is claiming victory when it matters most.

"When considering how to approach the SailGP season, sure it’d be great to win every single event along the way, but we all know winning the finals is the only thing that matters," said Spithill.

"Take the NFL. A team could go undefeated in the regular season but if they lose the Super Bowl, who remembers or cares? What people remember is who won the Super Bowl; and the Grand Final in San Francisco is SailGP’s Super Bowl.

"We are the underdog, but we’ll have the home team advantage and a huge amount of support. I believe we have the team to win."

The Mubadala United States Sail Grand Prix | San Francisco takes place on 26-27 March. Tickets are available HERE.
