Joining the Doyle Sails UK team was an opportunity too good to refuse. Ben comments “where Doyle is right now around the world is inspiring, their projects and technology puts them ahead of everyone else, and I am excited about working with them’.

Ben has spent most of his time in the 470 and Nacra 17 Olympic classes, along with many years in most sports boats, with experience also onboard Swan’s, Commodores Cup Campaigns and Farr 45’s.

Doyle Sails is all about supporting and partnering with people that share the same obsession with sailing as we do. Ben certainly fits that profile – “to put it simply I love all boats and all types of sailing, so I am excited to get involved with everything from large offshore campaigns to J70’s and Etchells and everything racing and cruising in-between”.
