Episode Eleven

George and Deeksie begin to wind down this week, as our Club starts to get back to normal. First of all George makes a call to Japanese 2018 M2O competitor Keiichirou Morimura to see how things are at Osaka’s Hokko Yacht Club.

Then the guys are joined by two Navy men, retired Royal British Navy Captain John Hollidge and retired Australian Navy Lt Commander Robert Ware. We met John briefly a few weeks ago in episode nine and this week we find out a lot more about his career and around the world sailing adventure. Alongside this, Rob tells us what he’s been up to since retiring including his role as an international racing judge.
