The Swiss Defender of the Cup revealed its sailing team. The helmsman will be the American sailor Ed Baird, who has been tasked with steering SUI 100 to victory. He’ll be up against a motivated Challenger in Emirates Team New Zealand. Later Emirates Team New Zealand won the coin toss, and the Kiwis will have the favoured starboard tack entry into the start box for the first race. The teams will alternate thereafter.
