Team USA45 Racing is very pleased to announce the hiring of our new coach, Charlie Ogletree. Charlie has joined TeamUSA45 as head coach to lead the team in the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup. Charlie brings a great deal of experience to Team USA45 having most recently been the skipper of the America’s Cup China Team. Prior to that, he was a coach for the America’s Cup winning Team BMW/Oracle Racing in 2008. Charlie has also represented the United States as a four-time Olympian in the Tornado class and won a silver medal at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. During those Games, Charlie was elected Team Captain by his fellow Olympians to lead the USA Sailing Team. Charlie has raced, and won, at all levels in the sport of sailing, a tradition he hopes to carry on to Team USA45. He puts all of these qualities together in a humble and respectable way and will use these qualities to meld Team USA45 into a tight group ready to represent the USA. Welcome aboard Charlie!
