Known for his un-paralleled strength and endurance, Chris has raced in a number of classes and international circuits including the America’s Cup and the Audi MedCup.
As part of the British Sailing Team from 1999 to 2005, Brittle was Ben Ainslie’s training partner through the 2004 Olympics, and a coach to Iain Percy and Andrew Simpson when they won gold at the 2008 Olympics.
His first America’s Cup campaign was during AC32, when he joined +39 Challenge as grinder. After racing in the AudiMed Cup with the Portuguese TP52 Team, Chris joined Team Origin where he sailed once again with teammate Iain Percy. Brittle impressed onboard Team Korea’s AC45 in the inaugural America’s Cup World Series in 2011 before lending his wealth of experience to Artemis Racing in 2012.
This is his second campaign with the team.
