Baltimore's Revelin Minihane Lifts the America's Cup

#americascup – West Cork Commodore's Cup sailor and 1720 crew and former Mirror world dinghy champion, Revelin Minihane (right), who is also a helmsman with Baltimore RNLI lifeboat, proudly holds the America's Cup aloft during celebrations in San Franciso. As well he might, he has been a member of  Team Oracle for five years. Minihane is pictured here with team mates in post regatta celebrations.

Minihane, who hails from from Skibbereen, went to school in Schull Community College. He sailed as crew for Marty Moloney of RCYC to Mirror World Championship success in South Africa in 1999. A former Fastnet Schools regatta winner,  Minihane served as bow man for Anthony O'Leary on Antix in the 2006 Irish Commodore's Cup team. He has numerous 1720 Regatta wins to his name sailing with Nicholas O'Leary. He went to the RC44 circuit with Russell Coutts in 2008 and from there on to Team Oracle in 2010, tasting America's Cup success this week.
