Who is this guy, Bob Coutts?Is he the future of Martin Marietta Corp.'s Middle River complex, or the person chosen to write the final chapter in the history of a once-proud plant that served as the backbone of the nation's aerospace industry?This is what the 1,400 workers at the Aero and Naval Systems division are wondering as they nervously await word on where, or if, they will fit into the proposed merger of Martin Marietta and Lockheed Corp.The questions also haunt Robert B. Coutts, the stocky, 42-year-old executive who recently took over the corner office at the sprawling Middle River complex where Glenn L. Martin had his desk for more than two decades.

SAN DIEGO -- Three days into the Louis Vuitton Cup, there already was talk of a critical race yesterday between Team New Zealand and Win New Zealand, each of which was undefeated in the challenger trials for the America's Cup.It may seem absurd that such an early race carry much, if any, importance in a four-month regatta.But yesterday Team New Zealand constructed an early yardstick by which every challenger syndicate in town can measure its progress.In winds from 5 to 6 knots and unsettled seas, Team New Zealand and skipper Russell Coutts started the second race of the day 10 minutes behind the first pair, oneAustralia and Sydney '95 -- and finished the 18.55-nautical-mile course ahead of Sydney '95 and less than a minute behind oneAustralia.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Team New Zealand, skippered by a 26-year-old first-timer, retained the America's Cup today with a clean, 5-0 sweep over the Italians, sending this nation of sailors into party time. It was the first successful non-American defense in the Cup's 149-year history, with the Kiwis repeating the 5-0 whitewash they gave Cup veteran Dennis Conner in San Diego in 1995 to win sailing's most prestigious trophy. Dean Barker replaced veteran Russell Coutts, 38, at the wheel of the Kiwis' boat, Black Magic, for its final race.

Martin Marietta Corp. has named Robert B. Coutts head of its Aero and Naval Systems division in Middle River, replacing William F. Ballhaus Jr., who was reassigned to the corporation's Electronics Group.The shift, which the company said is effective immediately, comes two weeks after the Baltimore County complex was accused of "incredibly shoddy" work on construction of parts used in a European-built commercial jetliner.Airbus Industrie's complaint had to do with part of the thrust reversers that the Middle River plant produces, under a $300 million subcontract with Pratt and Whitney, for use on the European consortium's A330 passenger jets.

Nine years ago, the U.S. Naval Academy had neither a windsurfing program nor a racing team. Now, it has six national championships and a reputation as one of the best windsurfing race teams in the country, thanks largely to a transplanted 54-year-old Scotsman.James Coutts had been running his own windsurfing school in Scotland, developing an international reputation, when in 1984 he took up Navy brass on their invitation to create and coach a windsurfing team at the academy.Since then, he has been drilling the midshipmen on the necessity for preparation and perfection.

With a front moving through the Baltimore area and the remnants of tropical storm Klaus further confusing the weather yesterday, Day 2 of the Cadillac Columbus Cup sailing regatta went considerably better than Day 1 -- unless you were Russell Coutts of New Zealand or Makoto Namba of Japan.The day started well enough for each of them, with Coutts defeating Antonio Gorostegui and Team Spain and Namba out-sailing Marcos Soares and Team Brazil, but then the bottom fell out.In the second flight of three four-race series sailed yesterday, Coutts was scheduled to face off with Larry Klein and Team USA. Namba was matched with Valdemar Bandolowski and Team Denmark.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Russell Coutts and Francesco de Angelis, New Zealand and Italian skippers in the America's Cup sailing competition, have the pride of their nations in their hands these days. But, with a 3-0 lead going into tomorrow's fourth race (tonight in Baltimore), Coutts clearly has the more secure grip. And, as each stands behind the wheel of a 75-foot racer here, he is backed by the support of millions of his countrymen and women. Already, both are national heroes: Coutts for outsailing veteran U.S. skipper Dennis Conner to win the Cup, 5-0, in San Diego in 1995, and giving Team New Zealand its commanding lead in the current Cup; De Angelis for getting the Italians, relative newcomers to sail match-racing, into the challenger's slot this year after winning his way past 10 crews -- five from the U.S. -- from six nations in a marathon, 202-match challengers series.

Skipper Russell Coutts and his savvy Numbers crew finished their domination of the nine-race inshore series of the Chesapeake Grand Prix yesterday with another masterful demonstration of the basics. They started with good boat positioning and mixed fine crew work with superior boatspeed, something not easy to do in these identically matched 48-foot Reichel-Pugh-designed sailing boats. The results were two wins and a third-place showing, a performance good enough to stretch its lead over the George Collins-owned Chessie by 11 points.

With July 4 falling on Thursday, boaters will have a chance to set up a long weekend on Maryland waters of the Chesapeake Bay and the state's many rivers and creeks, and a few simple precautions will help ensure that the fireworks are limited to staged displays.According to U.S. Coast Guard statistics, July is the most dangerous month for boating mishaps, perhaps because the onset of warm weather encourages virtually everyone with a boat to go out.The National Marine Manufacturers Association urges holiday boaters to follow three basic rules:Designate a skipper who won't drink alcoholic beverages while operating the boat.

SAN DIEGO -- With seconds ticking down to the start of Race 3 yesterday, as Paul Cayard tacked around to try to pin New Zealand early over the line, he made an urgent cry to his port trimmer:"Speed, Bill! Speed!"It was a dramatic moment for Cayard and both teams as they fought one of the toughest prestart duels yet in the America's Cup.But less than half an hour later, it was as clear as it had been in the two previous races: "Speed" is an element that the Young America boat just cannot deliver to Cayard and his crew.
