After graduating in 2013, Ben decided to take a ‘gap year’ to follow his passion for sailing. Finding a full time spot on an international racing team Ben has spent the last five years travelling around the world going from regatta to regatta, racing up and down the east coast of Australia, The Pacific and all throughout Asia. In 2017/18 Ben competed in the round the world “Volvo Ocean Race”, a grueling 45,000 nautical mile race sailing around the world. In 2019, Ben toured around the Atlantic competing in races in the Caribbean, the Transatlantic race and then a selection of regattas in the UK and Europe.
Having such a passion for boats Ben is really excited about the opportunity to join the BBM Yacht Sales team as the broker at their St George Motor Boat Club office in 2020.
