Profile

Growing up in Singapore, James Harayda found it easy to fall in love with the sea. He spent his weekends exploring and racing around the tropical island in various dinghies and keelboats. Fast forward 12 years and James has competed in many of the worlds largest offshore races. In the process, he has become a two-time British Double Handed National Champion with teammate Dee Caffari, who finished 6th in the 2008 Vendée Globe. Now it's James' turn to attempt the Everest of the seas!
