Katusha (RUS 21)

Date of launch: 2009
Hull number: 21
Boat owner: Alexander Novoselov (RUS)
Professional skipper: Andy Horton (USA)

The Russian team Katusha, joined the RC44 Class 2009 and have been working their way through the fleet ever since. With new owner Alexander Novoselov in the driving seat and experienced tactician Andy Horton by his side, the Russian team will hope to take charge of the mid-fleet in 2016 and push for the podium.

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.”
