Andy has been a professional sailor since 1996 on all types of boats, in a huge variety of venues and types of racing. Standouts include 2x America’s Cup campaigns and 10 years of World Class match racing. Andy enjoys the challenge of putting new teams together with a mix of both amateur and professional sailors. Although a big part of his professional career is now devoted to TV and online commentating at major events, Andy still finds the time to race and sail boats from 15ft up to 215ft.
On Ocean and Sailing Passion...
I love the look in someone’s face at the end of the day on the water. Success or disaster, an adventure has been had.
Attended the first Ocean Summit in Alicante and being involved in the Volvo Ocean Race has been an amazing renewal and reaffirmation of what we need to do – stop single use plastic. The message is clear and we cannot stop saying it enough. Use a reusable water bottle. Start somewhere. Start Now.
