As you may have seen over on our Facebook the Black & White Boat has now arrived in Hong Kong.  A big thank you to the crew who had a long sail from Australia to get there!

The hospitality programme will be starting on 26th March so if you’re in Hong Kong, keep an eye out for HUGO BOSS sailing past!  We’d love to see pictures so if you catch a glimpse, do share your photos with us.

We’ll take this opportunity to introduce new crew member Jesse Naimark-Rowse (USA).  Jesse started sailing dinghies when he was 6 and now has 70,000nm of sailing experience.  He completed studies in boat design and has since mixed sailing and design work across the globe. Races of note include the solo Mini Transat and double-handed TJV.  He’d love to do the Barcelona World Race, and to win a TJV or Route du Rhum.

Jesse ran into a whale on the way back from Hawaii in an Open 50, at speed.  He woke up as he was thrown out of his bunk and into the bulkhead.  The boat wiped out; word was that the whale came at them!
