Note the shoes of the gents first row, left. Note the blazers of the American skippers behind them. Chris Dickson, seated on the far right in a white top was the deadly match racing skipper of Kiwi Magic... he was often underestimated because he was in his twenties during the challenge. When he starting spinning boats (and heads) during the starting sequence's sparring, even guys like Dennis Conner sat up and noticed.
