Robin Talks Tough Tech with Dell

27 February 2019

From racing around the world with only a radio (that didn’t even work for the last four and a half months), to seeing the Clipper 2017-18 Round the World Yacht Race fleet by the latest Dell Latitude Rugged laptops, it’s fair to say Clipper Race Founder and Chairman Sir Robin Knox-Johnston has seen a lot change when it comes to sailing technology.

It was this stark contrast that sparked the interest of Dell’s Luminaries podcast. Luminaries features leaders from Dell’s customer, analyst, and partner communities and explores how technology touches lives, meaning the Clipper Race and Sir Robin’s adventures were the perfect fit for this popular podcast.

Ahead of the 50th anniversary of his historic solo non-stop circumnavigation, Robin sat down to chat with Luminaries hosts Mark Schaefer and Douglas Karr to discuss how far marine technology has come since 1969. Listeners will also find out how the Dell Latitude Rugged laptops powered the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race navigation and communications, enhancing the experience for those on board, and how anyone can indulge their sense of adventure and take on the challenge of this epic global race.
