AC World Series San Francisco Preview – ORACLE TEAM USA COUTTS
Some might find it bemusing that a four-time America’s Cup champion can be second fiddle to someone nearly 20 years younger, but such is the plight of Russell Coutts. The CEO of ORACLE TEAM USA has willingly taken a backseat to team skipper Jimmy Spithill as the reigning America’s Cup champs look to win the trophy again in 2013.
Coutts, however, takes the helm of the team’s No. 5 AC45 for the World Series regattas, and he can’t be taken lightly on the racecourse. He’s won back-to-back match racing championships at Newport and San Francisco, in both instances beating Spithill
Prediction: It would be surprising if Coutts didn’t make a run at the podium for the match racing, and if he can stay on the water he’ll figure in the mix for the fleet racing as well.
