Biography

South African yachtsman Nick Leggatt will bring a wealth of experience to the role of Skipper in the Clipper 2019-20 Race.

The 52-year-old from Cape Town has accomplished a lot since he began dinghy sailing aged 10; going on to notch up more than 280,000 nautical miles, circumnavigate the globe three times, and set five world speed sailing records, including a round the world record with American adventurer Steve Fossett’s crew on Cheyenne (Playstation) in 2004.

Communication is set to be the byword for Nick’s team, who believes that developing efficient lines of communication leads to more effective manoeuvres and a happier team.
