World Record sailor Alex Alley has raced around the world and sailed at the highest level for many years. In 2019 he spent 75 days alone at sea, covering over 14,500 nautical miles non-stop. He sailed from Northern France, through the heat of the tropics and the storms of the Southern Ocean to Australia. During this challenging trip he had to deal with broken auto pilots, the day-to-day running of a high performance yacht in challenging conditions, and making the very difficult decision to head to Australia after damage to the mast which meant he couldn’t continue on his record attempt.
Co-author of Boat to Boardroom and The 7 Racing Rules of Winning, he speaks on his experiences, runs workshops on dealing with adversity and delivers Adventure Psychology with Paula Reid.
