Briton Dee Caffari is the only female skipper and the sole one to choose a 50-50 male/female crew aboard Turn the Tide on Plastic.

Fellow Kiwi Brad Farrand remained in the team.

Tienpont, a former member of Oracle in the America's Cup, has denied any breach of contract since he was cast aside on October 13.
