To celebrate the 80th birthday of their Brand Ambassador, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, MS Amlin Yacht, the boat insurance specialists, have created a series of twelve videos titled "80 Seconds with Sir Robin Knox-Johnston", presented by another legendary round the world sailor, Dee Caffari.

Watch the series trailer below now and enjoy the first episode to be launched on March 17th:

One 80 second episode will be released every month throughout 2019 with each delving into the mind of Sir Robin to discover his thoughts on topics including the lure of the sea, the future of sailing and how it has been impacted by the changing environment. Whilst sailing aboard Suhaili with his talented peer and friend Dee Caffari, we were able to capture conversations and special moments which allow us to bring you a unique insight into the worlds most famous sailor.

Sir Robin epitomises MS Amlin Yacht's core values and as such the business is hugely thankful to him for being a Brand Ambassador. From his persistence and skill overcoming huge obstacles to achieve his victory in the Golden Globe win 50 years ago this year, through to his ongoing passion to get ordinary people to challenge themselves to take on the Clipper Round the World Race, his leadership, professionalism and integrity are second to none.

You can watch the video series on the MS Amlin Yacht YouTube Channel or via our website.
