What is Russell Coutts up to..

Recommended Posts

....and.... by the sound of it....... pushing a more "let's have fun and just go sailing" approach than the raceracerace brigade

 

Which works for me..

He was a key part (from skipper to head honcho) is what, five consecutive AC victories? Six? 

I doubt that will ever be equaled. 

I met his smarter brother once when he dropped into our club - very unassuming and gracious person.

Yeah and it’s great to see you guys being fun ambassadors down at the local . The return for sailing as whole is far greater than spending millions on a select few to go to the olympics

3 wins as skipper equal with Charlie Barr on the water.

Best sailor ever?   ...

Gold medal as well.

I think DC won more AC races and was closest to the Trifecta (as Skipper) with Whitbread 3rd?, Olympic Gold, and AC wins.

Ainslie is the only guy who could topple them both?

 

On the sherry all ready...

Is that a statement or question?...

Try to moderate your drinking eh!

Not even close.

Coutts by a country mile followed by Ainsley. Then Conner.

I don't rate the 49er ahead of the finn.

The finn is a tougher class to win.
