A veteran of the offshore racing scene in Southern California, Kinney holds the Pacific Cup and San Diego to Puerto Vallarta records set onboard the behemoth Rio100 maxi racing program the same year he won the Melges 32 world championship.

New to the United States SailGP Team for Season 2, Kinney brings an aggressive amount of multihull muscle to the crew from his experience competing in the popular M32 class where he has competed since 2017.

“I’m mainly looking forward to getting out on the fastest boats in the world and competing against the best sailors in the world while representing the United States.”

“We’re hungry to prove ourselves. While the learning curve and competition are incredibly steep, we’re confident that we have a team that can withstand adversity and improve each and every day.”
