The Ocean Race: Ian Walker on the 2021-22 edition route


During his career Ian Walker has competed at the very highest level in international yacht racing. He has two Olympic silver medals of his own (1996 and 2000) and coached Shirley Robertson’s Yngling team to a gold at the Sydney 2004 Games. He skippered the British America’s Cup campaign in 2002 and in 2015 became the first and only British skipper to lift the Volvo Ocean Race trophy after winning the race with Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing. Since announcing his retirement from active campaigning Walker has been working as the Director of Racing at the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) – a role that encompasses the British Olympic Sailing Team.
