I now have a shore manager that has the experience to both come up with innovative ideas and also tell me when my ideas rae any good or suck.

Thanks to Martin Carter for agreeing to act as our shore manager. Martin is a friend of ours and come with a huge (actually huge is an understatement) background in ocean racing yacht build and fitout. Now I've spoken to him heaps about some of the projects he's worked on, but I nearly fell off my chair when he sent me his CV and I realised actually how many he's been involved in. If I rolled up his specialties I guess its historically been repairs and installations to engineering, electrical, electronic, plumbing and hydraulic systems on local and overseas boats.

Heres a few to give you an Idea:
Currently At C-Quip overseeing the installation of their carbon fibre goodies in Superyachts worldwide

Recently - Project Managed build, refits and/or engineering systems for numerous boats including Volvo 70 ‘Telefonica', Open 60 class yacht Ecover, Ecover 3, Vendee Global Kingfisher many of these as Project Manager for Owen Clark Design or their clients.

Martin also has huge experience in managing or actual work on many other round the world boats, delivery of boats, shore crew and other duties for America's cup and Volvo Ocean teams etc etc etc etc.

Martin thanks for your support and believing in me. I can't wait to share this Journey with you as my key man on the ground.
