Team Nika (RUS 10)

Hull number: 10
Boat owner: Vladimir Prosikhin (RUS)
Tactician: Dean Barker (NZL)

Russian Team Nika joined the RC44 class in 2011 after owner and technology entrepreneur, Vladimir Prosikhin first got a taste for RC44 racing as a guest onboard the RC44 Beecom in Portorož, Slovenia in 2009. Calling tactics for the team, America's Cup sailor Terry Hutchinson finished the 2014 season on a high. An unmatched level of consistency throughout the four days of fleet racing saw Team Nika secure the RC44 Oman Cup with a race to spare.

Hutchinson, who joined Team Nika halfway through the 2014 season explained: “Oman is the first regatta Nika has ever won; it was awesome to be part of that. Vladimir is a really good man - we’ve got a great team. The more you do this sport, the more you realise everything just needs to fall in to place. Good starts, fast upwind and good boat speed - we were reliable all week.”
