San Diego, Sunday 6th March 2011: The Oracle RC44 Cup San Diego ended with a fabulous victory by the Russian team Katusha, after five days of feverishly competitive sailing off Broadway Pier.

It was a particularly satisfying win for Katusha’s tactician, Paul Cayard. ‘I lived here in San Diego for 12 years and it’s been fun to be here this week. It means a lot to win this regatta in a town that I spent so much of my life in, and it’s been fun seeing all of my friends from some time past. Congratulations to all the teams, these races are extremely tough and it’s a lot of fun.’

RC44 Downwind San DiegoThe man behind it all, Russell Coutts – the ‘RC’ in RC 44 – was also happy with his week. ‘We are happy with second place, it was a tough regatta for us, lots of difficult conditions, but we’re very happy. This regatta in San Diego is one of our best for sure, it was just a great venue, lots of variables on the race course, lots of people here and lots of interest, it’s been fantastic. We are hoping to be back here again.’

It was great news for SEA San Diego’s President John Laun, as he reflected on their first event, ‘This is the first event for the Sailing Events Association (SEA) of San Diego. We’re a non-profit association formed to bring exactly this sort of event to San Diego, to get the local people excited about sailing and to stimulate our local economy for travel and tourism.

We’ve exceeded our expectations for delivering a really good spectator-friendly event.’
