New season, new crew

The 2018 sailing season is just beginning to warm up, as is the weather – finally! We’ve had a very busy winter getting ready for the new season, including designing our new website – going live soon, reviewing and overhauling our logistics and operations, and hiring a new Events Manager.

Richard Moxey joins the Solent Events team as an Events Manager, having crewed for us as a sailing mate over a number of years. Richard’s just returned from a year in sub-Saharan Africa working on government aid projects. A mad keen sailor and racer, he is a member of the Royal Ocean Racing Club – our Lendy Cowes Week partner venue. A natural enthusiast, Richard has sailed in UK waters and abroad, above photo in Cannes, all his life.

“I’m hugely excited to join Solent Events and feel very lucky to working in the industry I love… After a year in Africa I’ve missed the Solent and can’t wait to get back on to the water organising events!”
