The Russian team Katusha, joined the RC44 class 2009. In 2012 they were runners up to Team Aqua in the Championship Tour. Owner Vadim Alexeev will once again have American Star sailor Andy Horton by his side as tactian.

Andy Horton explained just how close the racing is: “In this Class if you have an average score of four you can normally win the event, if you have an average score of six you are almost last and that just sums up how close the racing is and how important it is to be consistent.”
