SailGP
Nick Hutton joined the Australia SailGP Team ahead of Season 2 as a grinder. Hutton, hailing from the United Kingdom, is the only international member of a majority Australian crew. He joined the team with a wealth of experience onboard SailGP's cutting-edge F50 catamaran, having previously sailed as a grinder and wing trimmer in the Great Britain SailGP Team.

Youth
Hutton grew up sailing on the River Dart in Devon, where his parents ran a mast building business. His local yacht club is The Royal Dart Yacht Club in Kingswear, which faces Dartmouth, home of the Royal Naval College. Nick graduated to sailing cadets out of Exmouth and it was here that his simple ambition to “get paid to race boats” cemented itself in his mind at the age of 12.

Sailing runs deep in the family, with both his father and his grandfather being keen yachtsmen. His parents would take him out on their boat as a baby and strap his moses basket to the deck; he spent a lot of his early childhood afloat and took to the helm from the age of 5. Hutton sailed in his first world championships in Tasmania in 1995 and came fifth, which gave him the appetite to achieve more.

Career
Over 30 years ago, Nick Hutton started sailing on the River Dart. He still lives close by but his love for extreme sports alongside an international sailing career has taken him all over the world.

Hutton made his America's Cup debut in 2012, with the Italian entry, ‘Prada Luna Rossa Challenge’ taking home two America’s Cup World Series wins (2011/12 and 2015/16). Following this he spent time in Bermuda for seven months with the British Challenger for the 35th America’s Cup.

Hutton returned to the INEOS UK Team to compete in the 36th America's Cup.

Personal
When he’s not on the water, Hutton lives in the Devon countryside, where he enjoys time with his wife and two young boys, rides dirt bikes, mountain bikes and kiteboards when the breeze is up.
