Ep 19 - Nathan Outteridge

September 18, 2020

Nathan Outteridge is one of the world's top sailors, having been an Olympic 49er champion and four-time world champion, skipper of two America’s Cup campaigns and now skipper and chief executive of the Japan SailGP team. He talks about his journey in this podcast, from training with a young Peter Burling and Blair Tuke and having three America’s Cup syndicates all chasing him at the same time to his superstitions and why he is seemingly so calm on a boat.

But he also reflects on the low moments, like the time he was involved in a serious car crash and didn’t know if he would ever be able to sail again, the trauma of seeing an America's Cup teammate killed when out training and the devastation of capsizing with Olympic gold in his sights. Those experiences have shaped Nathan as a sailor and a person and allow him to provide a rich insight into a hugely successful sailing career.
