RORC Time Over Distance

Ian Walker relives tragedy and triumph in the Olympics, America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Race in the 10th edition of the RORC Time Over Distance Live Lockdown Series.

Since 2017 Ian has been the Director of Racing for the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) and in the interview he shares his thoughts on the shape of sailing post-lockdown.

Walker has won Olympic Silver for Great Britain as both helm and crew, and in different boats! He has competed in two America’s Cup’s, including skipper and helm of GBR Challenge. Three consecutive Volvo Ocean Race campaigns concluded with him becoming the first British skipper to win the race with Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing.
