If you weren’t in this role what else would you be?

Given that my dream to be an astronaut is probably not going to come true at my ripe old age, hopefully I’d still be working in sport in some way.

Best moment in your career so far?

I’ll answer this when I’ve helped secure a new title partner for the British Sailing Team.

What’s your greatest fear or phobia? 

Spiders. Can’t stand them. I could never live anywhere there’s a big creepy crawly population!

 What would you love to do but never have the time or money for it?

Learn to surf in Hawaii. Go on safari in Africa. Visit the Taj Mahal. See the Northern Lights. Visit Machu Pichu. I really need to start buying a National Lottery ticket!

What’s your worst habit?

Getting distracted halfway through a conversation then remembering hours later I didn’t finish it.

Name 3 things that are always in your shopping trolley?

Teabags Milk Cheese

What was the last book you read?

The Racer by David Millar on my Kindle and The Chimp Paradox by Prof Steve Peters on Audible.

What’s your favourite boat to sail?

Coming from a sport with a different kind of boats (rowing) I can’t answer that at the moment but I hope I’ll find out.
