Profile

Conrad Colman was born in Auckland to an American father and a New Zealand mother, and spent his first year on a sailing boat in the Pacific. After studying in Colorado and setting up a business manufacturing titanium bicycles, he decided to follow his dream of offshore sailing and moved to Europe. He made his debut in the 2009 Mini-Transat, then went on to compete in the Class40 Route du Rhum and a double-handed round-the-world race, which he won. He then moved up to the IMOCA class and competed in the 2016 Vendée Globe, which he finished after dismasting off Portugal. He became the 1st sailor to complete the race with 0 emissions. A challenge he is keen to take up again in 2024.
