The sailing nut of the bunch, Simon’s speciality is all things water based. With a corporate background spanning nearly 20 years, Simon has now been in the events industry for over 10 years. Having lived and sailed in Cowes all his life, he’s also a commercially endorsed skipper for both power and sail and loves nothing more than getting out on the water managing events when he can get out of the office.
Our newest addition to the team; Richard, studied Geography at University before managing projects across sub-Saharan Africa. He brings to EMG a wealth of yacht racing experience having sailed in UK waters, the Mediterranean and Caribbean. When not at work he’s either racing offshore, skiing in the Alps, shooting or playing polo.
