Skippers 2018

SORT BY:

The number of entrants for the Race is limited to 30, and the event is already oversubscribed. Those provisionally registered and paid-up for the race, and  others on the wait list have a remarkable range of backgrounds and sailing experience. Professional sailors and adventurers dominate but they also include an architect, farmer, furniture maker, foreign exchange trader, engineer, teacher and social media technologist. All have considerable short – and single-handed sailing experience, one having logged five solo circumnavigations. They are from Australia (4), Brazil (1), Estonia (1), France (7), Ireland (1), Italy (2), New Zealand (1), Norway (1), Palestine (1), Russia (1), Switzerland (1), UK (5), and the USA (4). Their average age is 48. The youngest are 27 (one British woman, two Italian men and one American). The oldest is a 71 year-old Frenchman. Some skippers wish to remain anonymous that this stage until sponsorship is announced.
