ORACLE Racing Coutts crew change for San Diego
San Francisco, Monday, October 24, 2011
Darren Bundock (top) will take the helm at the third ACWS event whilst fellow Australian Olympic sailor Tom Slingsby (second, third picture above) also comes aboard for the first time. Russell Coutts (fourth picture above), ORACLE Racing’s CEO, will attend the San Diego event but won’t be racing.
Bundock is a two time Olympic silver medalist in the Olympic Tornado catamaran class; Slingsby is the current World No.1-ranked competitor in the Olympic singlehanded Laser class.
ORACLE Racing’s second crew headed by James Spithill will compete in San Diego with a crew unchanged from August’s ACWS-Cascais (Portugal) and last month’s ACWS-Plymouth (UK).
ACWS-San Diego is scheduled Nov. 12-20 with racing staged right in heart of San Diego Bay between Broadway Pier and Harbor Island.
