Alex Alley is author of "From Boat to Boardroom" and is an ordinary man who has achieved extraordinary things. As a child he taught himself to sail in a small dinghy and with no formal training was soon making his boat go faster. Through persistence he managed to crew on ever bigger and faster yachts, learning all the time. His determination was rewarded when, at the age of 21, he was selected to represent England.
He raced professionally with the same team for almost 2 years with great success, winning several major international events. More recently he has returned from the Global Challenge Round the World Yacht Race, where he lead his team in some of the worlds most hostile environments, non-stop 24 hrs a day for up to 8 weeks at a time.Let him take you on this incredible journey around the world. Experience the ‘highest highs and the lowest lows’ of the team as they battled against the odds.
