I believe that it's just a straight nautical tie between Skipper's -- the chief of boats -- and the fact the manager is chief of the team.

The Team itself can be considered his boat.... I don't know if there was a specific incident that led to the popularizeing of Skipepr being used to term a manager, but the comparison between Captains of boats and Managers of teams shoudl be pretty clear.

As the head of the team managers are called Skipper. Skipper is a nautical term used to address the captain of a ship. The manager is referred to as "skipper" as the captain of a ship, or the leader of a team.

The owner of the team usually hires the manager. Then the skipper reports directly to the owner or to the owner's representative.
