BMW ORACLE Racing will compete in the fifth event of the RC 44 Championship Tour 2008 starting tomorrow in Trieste, Italy. Larry Ellison (USA) will be helming and Russell Coutts (NZL) will be calling tactics.

'Our team looks forward to lining up against some of the world’s best match racers in the Golfo di Trieste this week,' said Russell Coutts who is CEO of BMW ORACLE Racing. 'With these competitors in this fleet, we expect some very close racing. The teams to watch are Torbjorn Tornqvist’s Artemis with Dean Barker and Team Ceeref with Morgan Larson.'

On board with Ellison and Coutts will be BMW ORACLE Racing’s Dirk de Ridder (NED), mainsail trimmer; Ross Halcrow (NZL), trimmer; and Alan Smith (NZL), bow.

Other BMW ORACLE Racing team members competing in Trieste include Michele Ivaldi (ITA) and Joe Newton (AUS) with Team Ceeref; and Daniel Fong (NZL), Alberto Barovier (ITA) and Julien Di Biase (SUI) will sail on de Barros’ Team Banco Espirito Santo.

Following two days of match racing, the regatta shifts to fleet racing on Thursday 9th October. Peter de Ridder joins BMW ORACLE Racing as helmsman for the fleet racing with BMW ORACLE Racing’s Hamish Pepper (NZL) as tactician. Coutts will join Patrick de Barros’s team.
