Jimmy Spithill has confirmed he does want another crack at the America's Cup.

The provocative Australian skipper won the Auld Mug in 2010, as skipper and helmsman of BMW Oracle Racing.

And he defended it twice, before losing this year in Bermuda to Emirates Team New Zealand.

It's not clear whether Oracle will come to the next America's Cup but there are rumours of a strong Australian challenge.

Spithill said either way, he wants back in.

"To be quite honest I don't know if I'll ever get over Bermuda, but I can't leave it like that."
