Now a bell ringing, bee keeping businessman (not always in that order) Keith has limited yachting experience but considerable sea-going experience having served afloat for the majority of his 34 years service in the Royal Navy. This included serving in every class of warship from minesweeper to aircraft carrier, commanding 4 different ships (a minesweeper, two destroyers and an amphibious command ship) and commanding all UK maritime forces in the Middle East for a 2 year period. Concurrently he was the Deputy Coalition Commander of a multi-national force of over 115 warships drawn from 22 different countries. For him the challenge and excitement of being part of the Clipper Round The World Race team has proved irresistible, in particular taking on the four big west-east ocean crossings and the chance to sail across oceans and seas he has yet to experience.

I wouldn’t dream of giving you advice Sir, but I well remember a line in your Order Book for OOWs in NEWCASTLE where you said that you expected them to ‘bounce back from inevitable bad watches’. See? Even this Greenie was paying attention! DJL
Hi David, I remember it well. It would seem you paid more attention than some watchkeepers!!! Happy New Year.
