Hutchinson's records stand best in the Farr 40 and TP52 classes, among the premier pro-level monohulls in the world. With a transition to Maxi 72 class, via the Bella Mente campaign, he will soon have that end of the sailing spectrum covered as well. The 46-year-old father of three is a native of Annapolis. He learned to sail at age three in a Dyer Dhow that was attached by a line to his parent's Concordia yawl. Going back and forth on the end of that line set him on a course to becoming a college star at Old Dominion University (Norfolk, Va.) where he earned Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) All-American honors four times (1987, '88, '89, '90), and was twice recognized as College Sailor of the Year ('89 and '90).
