No I did not know, but it seems to me that the only thing he is up to is having the good taste (and I hope the sense of business) to Sponsor a great solo British solo sailor in a great race that I hope it will be far bigger in the next edition: A circumnavigation race on 40 class racers with a duo crew (Round-the-world race).

The boat (Caterham Challenge) will be an Aquilaria RC3 40class racer, the new version of a production racer designed by Marc Lombard.

By the way, I love Caterham. It is almost impossible to desire the same car since a kid but that is what happens to me and the Lotus 7 designed by another car genius (Colin Chapman) 60 years ago. As you know the car today is called Caterham and it is as fast and amusing to drive as it was the 7 on its days.

Since they are sponsoring racing sailboats let me go a bit out and show you this (imagine how those guys on the Ferraris and Porsches, with 3 times the horsepower and 5 time the cost should be feeling not being able to go away from those oldies. That are the kind of "old shoes" I like):
