Expect this American bid to be competitive.

Software businessman and Oracle founder Larry Ellison heads up one of the best-funded syndicates in the Louis Vuitton Cup.

Ellison bought the assets of 2000 finalists AmericaOne and will benefit greatly from that team's hard-won experience during this campaign, having retained star sailors Paul Cayard and Chris Dickson.

They both know the Hauraki Gulf well, having trained there since 2001.
