Brad Butterworth is one of this country’s finest ever sailors.  

He was tactician to Russell Coutts for New Zealand’s breakthrough Cup victory in San Diego in 1995, was there for the successful defence in Auckland in 2000 and went on to win another 2 America's Cups  

He told Simon and Phil he's hoping it will be a tight race from a spectator's point of view. 

But says he believes Peter Burling has the edge over rival Jimmy Spithill.
