Russell Coutts Signs with Oracle

Why is this man smiling? It might have to do with the fact that he has just signed his own ticket to retirement with Larry Ellison. Sources in Europe have reported to us that Russell spoke with Larry on Sunday, July 15th during the Malcesine Cup and has agreed to skipper Oracle Racing and run the program. How much is this deal worth? That’s a good question! We have heard that Larry said “Whatever you want!” Maybe that is why Russell is grinning ear to ear. You may think this is a rumor but it's not. Nice work Russell! -SK
