OneWorld is the first America's Cup syndicate to hail from Seattle and it has not had the smoothest of start-ups.

Founder Craig McCaw has spared no expense, but his bid has already been docked one Louis Vuitton point by an arbitration panel for being in possession of design secrets from another team.

That penalty may damage Seattle's first ever campaign, although the team looks well-prepared.
