The World Cruising Club team are here to help make your participation as enjoyable as possible. All of our team members are keen sailors with a wide range of experience in cruising and racing offshore.
During the rallies all of the team will wear yellow World Cruising Club polo shirts. Our ‘yellow shirts’ will be on hand to help every day, from taking your lines to ensuring the social activities go with a swing.
Andrew Bishop: Managing Director
Andrew has overall responsibility for the planning and logistics of our rallies, and relations with our many sponsors and corporate members. Andrew has been sailing since he was a boy, including JOG races, one of the very early ARCs in 1989 and Caribbean and Pacific cruising. He now sails his own "Spray of Wight" a wooden replica of Joshua Slocum's Spray on the west coast of Scotland.
Jeremy Wyatt: Communications Director
Jeremy is in the lucky position of speaking to many of our participants well before the start of their adventures. He runs our website and print media as well as helping with preparation advice at seminars. He is a keen sailor and has sailed around the world with the Europa 92 rally, and made a double-handed circumnavigation of Britain. Living in Cowes he is right on the water's edge and enjoys evening and weekend racing on one-design day boats.
On the Rally - 'The Yellowshirts'
The rally team will be on hand for your pre-departure preparations and safety advice and to meet you in each port to help with local officials, and organise the social and sightseeing itinerary. The multilingual team are experienced sailors and global travellers, who are passionate about ensuring you have the best possible time on the rally.
