Stevie Morrison: “Oman Sail and the Tour is a fantastic platform”

English double 49er Olympian Stevie Morrison is back as skipper on the Oman Sail’s Renaissance Services, starting his fourth Tour today in the Oman colours. Morrison loves the duration and intensity of the Tour and relishes this edition with a team which is just three strong – racing with Oman’s Abdul Rahman Al Mashari and French ace Quentin Ponroy (ex Lorina Limonade). This season Morrison has been coaching in the 49er class and has been coaching Franck Cammas’ Norauto team on the GC32 Tour.  With his keen perspective over so many aspects of the modern day, including his commentary work in the America’s Cup, Morrison caught a few minutes of Tip & Shaft before the Tour took off.
