Terry and Matt, a father & son team! I have been boating for over 40 years, enjoying power boating in the 70’s teaching Scouts water skills in the 80’s, and cruising with my family since the 90’s. Matt grew up in and around boats – we had Westerly Konsort (the “floating caravan”) and later a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 32 which we cruised around the C.I., Normandy and Brittany coasts. I have occasionally raced my cruising boats – primarily in the local passage races including the annual Guernsey – Jersey race. However, I have always wished to do a long distance trip. Matt has crewed round the cans on a J97 for a few years and he suggested we combine our aspirations and compete in the AZAB. We decided the Maxi 1050 is the ideal boat for the job.
