Will Jackson - Director / Rigging Manager“The lessons learnt, the clients gained and my wide and varied experience are what I bring to this partnership.”
Will has worked his entire working life in the marine industry and claims to be of no use in the civilian world...
Having started sailing at a young age and spending his summers working in local marinas, Will decided the sailing industry was for him. He moved to Falmouth to study Marine Engineering before heading back to Portsmouth where he started working for Sunsail. After his time at Sunsail, and gaining experience in rigging, Will joined Alex Thomson Racing as corporate crew. Will spent over a decade working with Alex and the team across four Vendée Globe campaigns, leading him to the role of Boat Captain for Alex’s IMOCA 60.
In 2017, Will launched Racetec Rigging, one of the premier race boat rigging companies in the UK, working on a wide-range of boats from superyachts to cruisers.
