Captain: Dave Hanna New Zealand,
Dave Hanna started his ocean sailing career aged 12 when he set off with his parents from his native New Zealand on a round the world adventure in their 36´sailing boat. His travels thereafter kept him close to the sea spending many years around the Mediterranean Sea engaging in everything from commercial shipping and salvage, to olive growing. He has a racing record of distinction, having competed in the Whitbread Round the World Race and very many notable regattas worldwide with Overall Winner trophies to his credit. Dave´s occupation in professional yachting has spanned many years and has included some of the finest sailing boats ever built, including the Galileo which he has skippered for over five years.
