Universally recognized as one of the world’s best racing navigators, Jules was born on the Isle of Wight and grew up racing on the capricious waters of the Solent. Inspired by the teams from around the world who came to Cowes for premiere events like the Whitbread Race and Admiral’s Cup, he soon became a familiar face on the international yacht racing scene.
Jules has three Volvo Ocean Races to his name but this is his first race around the world in identical one-design boats – a welcome new challenge that he believes makes the race all the more exciting.
