What our yacht racing clients say
I expressed my interest to compete in our first Transatlantic Race. We contacted Mike to not only race onboard but also to be hands on with getting the Yacht ready for her first Transatlantic Race.
115ft Racer cruiser
Mike has been an integral part of our race crew for many years now. As we look to better our performance year on year we consult Mike to assist with our upgrades.
140ft Racing Yacht
Mike stepped in last minute to manage a relocation of a yacht from Greece to the UK during Covid. The entire process was difficult to manage but Mike got the Yacht to the ship on time and we were continually updated of his progress.
