I have played football, baseball, basketball, hockey and tennis. I have never been in a Super Bowl, World Series, the NBA, the Stanley Cup, or Wimbledon. News of these events are well received in this household.
I also sail, but have never been on a 12-meter. If asked, I would be aboard faster than Mr. Butler will have this read to him.
Anyone that can select a matching pair of socks or eat with a fork without injurying themselves should have no trouble with the America's Cup trials procedures.
