Gascoyne to Sail Atlantic Single-Hand

Oct 22 2012

Caterham Technology and Caterham Composites CEO Mike Gascoyne will tackle his first solo transatlantic sailing crossing next month, it has been announced. Gascoyne will sail from Europe to the West Indies in 'Caterham Challenge', a class 40 offshore racing yacht that will carry Caterham's green and yellow colors. Caterham Composites, Caterham Group's specialist composite materials design and manufacturing arm, is already active in the top level of competitive sailing through its partnership with Alex Thomson Racing and 5 West and this crossing will help highlight that partnership. “Ever since I was very young I've thrived on pushing myself physically and mentally and doing my first solo transatlantic crossing is my next big challenge,” Gascoyne said. “Sailing is a real passion, something I've been lucky enough to do since growing up in Norfolk and now, with the help of Alex Thomson and 5 West, I'm about to take on something only a small number of people can say they've done. Phil Hall, Managing Director, Caterham Composites added: “I'm delighted that Caterham Composites has the opportunity to be involved in this unique project. Our recent work with Alex and his team and now Mike's crossing in the Caterham Challenge, is a perfect way for us to demonstrate our commitment to the marine industry. “We will be using the opportunity to collect some valuable data from the Caterham Challenge boat in preparation for some new marine based development projects. We will obviously be providing up to date coverage of the event on our website and looking forward to what I'm sure will be a great event.”
