Alex Alley

Multiple World Record Sailor and Inspirational Speaker


Experience Adventure

From Red Bull Soap Box to Sailing World Records


A Multiple World Record sailor, Alex has raced around the world at the highest level for many years. He is most recently back from spending an amazing 75 days alone at sea, covering over 14,500 nautical miles, non-stop from Northern France, through the heat of the tropics and the storms of the Southern Ocean to Australia.

During this challenging trip he had to deal with broken auto pilots, the day-to-day running of a high performance yacht in challenging conditions, and making the very difficult decision to head to Australia after damage to the mast which meant he couldn’t continue on this record attempt.

Whilst hugely disappointing, it was another immense adventure, bringing out the very best in the human spirit to cope when things aren’t going your way.
