With his extensive Ocean Racing experience, Alex works with marine challenges and projects, giving weather information and routing advice as well as managing complete projects.

Recently Alex has been involved in two large and very different projects. 

The first was the complete rebuild of the 90', £5.5 million super yacht 'Champagne Hippy'. Alex was brought in as a consultant to help with the sailing specification, including the rigging, sails and electronics. He then skippered the yacht from the boatyard in Essex to Las Palmas in the Canaries in order to successfully race her across the Atlantic in the ARC.

After sailing Champagne Hippy back from the Caribbean, Alex had only been in the UK for 4 days when he was asked to help out, and manage, a world record attempt to Stand-Up Paddleboard around the UK. Helping TV personality Jordan Wylie in the never before achieved challenge, Alex gives daily weather information and routing advice as well as skippering the support yacht from time to time.
