The Finn Class is delighted to announce it is partnering with Finn sailor and artist Rob Coutts to exclusively offer fine art prints of his distinctive oil paintings of Finns to help the class fund its FINNTEAM development programme sailing team.
Rob Coutts has very generously provided the Finn class with exclusive access to five of his original oil paintings to offer authorised prints for sale through the Finnshop. All profits from the sale go to help the sailors in the FINNTEAM prepare for the Rio Olympics and then support them as they start to prepare for Tokyo in four years time. Rob is a long time Finn sailor who won the Grand Masters title at the Finn World Masters in 2012. He is still actively sailing Finns out of Waiheke Island in New Zealand and San Diego, USA.
The FINNTEAM is a group of, currently, five sailors training and learning together with joint funding available through a Finn class initiative. It is a short cut to learning, as they share logistics, coaching and information to grow as a group and reach the highest levels. They come from diverse backgrouds and all sides of the planet, but one thing they have in common is a lack of funding and this is where the Finn Class is trying to make a difference, by promoting the FINNTEAM and the sailors and helping them to acheive their ambitions.
Two members of the FINNTEAM, Alejandro Foglia (URU) and Facundo Olezza (ARG) have already qualfied for Rio.
Rob Coutt’s paintings are available as gilcée fine art prints in a range of size. They are available on both Fine Art Rag and Canvas. Other sizes can be printed on demand.
