Part One of the LIVE Series spoke to Doyle expert Brian Thompson on his career as one of the most successful ocean racers. 
Brian Thompson is a well recognised British yachtsman making it into the history books by becoming the first (and only, so far) Briton to break the round the world sailing record twice. He was also the first to sail round the world non-stop four times! Brian is a vastly experienced and successful offshore sailor and was part of the Volvo Ocean Race winning team with Mike Sanderson’s ABN AMRO One crew in 2005/06. Brian has sailed a great many short-handed boats including Minis, Class 40s and IMOCA 60s, in which he completed the 2008 Vendee Globe. 

Brian was joined by Peter Greenhalgh and Adrian Stead in 2018 when they came on board with Doyle Sails Solent – where they bring their wealth of knowledge and experience to the teams and clients they work with on a daily basis.
