Brian not only raced against the clock in the Vendee Globe, he also recorded sightings of marine life for Earthwatch as he skippered the high-performance Open 60-class yacht through 23,000 nautical miles - with the Earthwatch logo proudly displayed on the mast.
‘I've sailed since I was three years old', says Brian, ‘the oceans are close to my heart. As an Earthwatch Ambassador, I share their commitment to protecting the seas from the threat of pollution, over harvesting and climate change, and urge others to support their research and conservation efforts. It is important that we all play a part in protecting our precious oceans before it is too late."
