Sailor Snagged in America’s Cup Scandal Sues ISAF

Mitchell, a grinder from New Zealand, was suspended for the first four races of the 2013 America’s Cup for what the jury said was his role in Oracle Team USA’s illegal modification of boats in warm-up regattas. That effectively ended Mitchell’s America’s Cup career. – Associated Press, full story
