Alan Goodwin

Land Director


Former Royal Navy Submariner Alan Goodwin knows all about round the world powerboat record attempts - he was the oldest crew member on board Cable & Wireless Adventurer during its successful 1998 world record circumnavigation. He will oversee Excalibur's resupply, including bunkering, with a goal of making sure that the boat completes each of the seven stops in just four hours. He will be helped by a 25-strong land-based team who are responsible for monitoring the vessel’s position and performance, emission data, safety, communications and public relations programme.
