Matt Coutts talks about the D-One

Posted on 30 September 2010 by Valencia Sailing

A young New Zealand sailor is currently in Valencia, training on his Finn during the European summer and autumn, with the aspiration to represent his country in the Finn class in the 2012 Olympic Games. His family name might sound very familiar and with good reason. Matt Coutts is the nephew of the legendary Russell Coutts, 4-time America’s up winner among other, striving to continue the family saga in the sport of sailing.

Coutts is one of the 35 sailors that take part in the inaugural Magic Marine BetPro Gold Cup and on Thursday he sailed in the practice race. Although not a absolute beginner on the D-One’s Coutts will need some more work to master them. As he says, “Finns are nice but the D-One’s are absolutely amazing, so fun to sail”.
