Tonight, sailing legend Alan Priddy officially launches to the press his round the world race in a bid to win the world record for the fastest circumnavigation of the globe in a powerboat.
This is no small feat, the world record, held by New Zealand, was completed in an astonishing 60 days, 23 hours and 49 minutes. Not only will he be leading a team of 9, Alan also hopes to be able to offer a place to an injured serviceman or woman on each leg of this great adventure. The race will launch in November 2015, and the British team will cover an estimated 24,000 nautical miles.
He commented: ‘This project is the culmination of a lifetime's work that I hope will highlight the amazing qualities and skills that we have in abundance in our country - the best sailors, engineers, boat builders and designers.
'This is why when we started this project six years ago we called ourselves Team Britannia.
'We have the finest maritime designers, builders and sailors in the world. The British boat Cable & Wireless Adventurer first set the round the world powerboat record in 1998 and held it for nearly a decade.
'When this record, the pinnacle of powerboating, was lost to the New Zealand boat Earthrace, I knew we had an amazing opportunity to once again showcase the best of British. To show why our marine industry is still the best.
'Team Britannia aims to do just that. It brings together just a few of the people who make Britain and our marine sector great.'
