Bundock to steer at next ACWS event
POSTED ON 11 SEPTEMBER 2011
Australian double Olympic silver medalist Darren Bundock will be given the helm of ORACLE Racing Coutts in the ACWS San Diego. Russell Coutts will stay onboard.
Driving the decision is the chance to start rotating members of the sailing team so that more experience AC45 racing and because Coutts is sure Bundock will sail the boat faster.
“Whenever Darren is aboard the boat, you can see the difference,” says Coutts, who combines his sailing roles with that of CEO.
Bundock is part of the sailing team’s coaching and performance group. “Darren’s been out with a crew. He’s already saying ‘send it, send it’ to encourage us to the push the boat harder.”
The ACWS San Diego event will be staged in San Diego Bay and focus on five days of racing culminating on Nov. 20.
