If you have ever wondered the pace at which sailing is improving with the day, you have to imagine the pace to be at its best. SailGP is one such tournament which is being headed by the businessman of Oracle, Larry Ellison, and Sir Russell who is known to be the most successful man of the helm in the history of the American Cup. The first season of the SailGP is set to commence in the year 2019, and the founders cum leaders are extremely excited to see this as a sport that could change the course of sailing forever.
Coutts has to be the right man to push this project because he is an Olympic champion in sailing and also the world champion for 12 times and has also been awarded the prestigious Sailor of the Year award twice.
Coutts went on to say further that the aim behind this thing is to provide a sport that will be consistently engaging for the audience all throughout the year and this will be the means to convert sailing to a sport that is full of professionalism and excitement. There will be teams from as many as seven countries that will compete in the inaugural edition.
