Louis Sinclair is a recent addition to ORACLE TEAM USA, yet he’s not new to the sport. He’s been a full-time professional sailor since age 16.
Sinclair started sailing during his childhood years in Antigua. Now as the youngest member of the ORACLE sailing team, he already carries a wealth of experience. He’s participated in two Sydney Hobart Races and three Fastnet Races. During the Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15, he was called in as a reserve for the winning Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing crew.
Skipper Jimmy Spithill introduced Sinclair to ORACLE TEAM USA. The two sailed together during the 2014 Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, and Spithill recommended him for a trial. They were impressed. The two sailed again together in the 2015 edition of the race, earning line honours onboard Comanche.
Young, strong and fit, Sinclair has applied his offshore experience to the America’s Cup. He moved straight into the lineup, serving as bowman for all three Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series regattas in 2015.
