Oracle, for its part, is coming off a tough series with Alinghi. Alinghi won
4-0. In almost every race Oracle changed its afterguard roster. Skipper Chris Dickson clearly wants to steer the boat. But this might not be the best thing for Oracle since Peter Holmberg has done a good job, particularly on the starting line. This will be a classic Peter Gilmour versus Chris Dickson match. The two have raced against each other for over 20 years. Both have had struggles when the action gets particularly intense. The stakes are high. The decisions made by Dickson and Gilmour could make the difference.
