Red Bull Sailing Team - 2018 (AUT)
Led by double Olympic gold medallists Roman Hagara and Hans Peter Steinacher, Austrian challenger Red Bull Sailing Team introduces some impressive new faces for the first Act of the Series. Two-time America’s Cup sailor Chris Draper takes the helm in the team’s ninth season on the circuit, with hopes of leveraging his superior knowledge of foiling to propel the team through the ranks.
Backing him up is a new crop of young pros. Scottish sailor Neil Hunter joins the team on the foils, following a stint in the America’s Cup with Land Rover BAR and a win in the 2017 Red Bull Youth America’s Cup. He’s accompanied by British sailor and fellow Land Rover BAR America’s Cup competitor Ed Powys. The team looks to be a tough competitor, with Hunter and Powys both boasting prior Extreme Sailing Series experience. The line-up is completed by former 49er sailor Rhys Mara (AUS) and 2016 World Match Racing Tour winner Dan Morris (USA).Team Website »
