Nick Hutton joined Emirates Team GBR for Season 3 as a Trimmer/Grinder, bringing with him a wealth of experience onboard SailGP's cutting-edge F50 catamaran. Hutton spent Season 2 with the Australia SailGP Team, where he helped the team retain their SailGP title in the Grand Final in San Francisco.

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.

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 joined the British Challenger for the 35th America’s Cup, which included winning the America’s Cup World Series and reaching the semi-final stages of the AC Challenger Series.

Hutton returned to the INEOS UK Team to compete in the 36th America's Cup in Auckland, where they reached the final of the Challenger Series.

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.
