From Class 40 to new challenges in Ocean Fifty

"I wanted to evolve and progress. After five years in Class40, I felt that it was the right time to change support to restart a cycle. By entering Ocean Fifty, I'm moving to a bigger and faster class, which means I'll have to manage a bigger team and expand my pool of partners. The class is very suitable from a sporting point of view and also in terms of project management and visibility.”


Marketing Director at Dubarry, Michael Walsh commented that “we are very happy to support Luke with this challenge and wish him the best of luck and safe sailing in the forthcoming season”.
