Sailing, one of the most ancient methods of transport and exploration, is becoming more and more extreme. Technological advancements mean that vessels are getting faster while sailors are better equipped than ever to conquer the elements and explore uncharted waters.
Oliver Dewar was introduced to sailing at an early age. Sailing on his parent's boat quickly led to dinghy racing and then to handling larger, inshore yachts. Racing with various teams, he competed in events in Europe, North America and Asia sailing a diverse range of boats. In 1998 he entered the professional ocean racing circuit at its highest level, participating in numerous transatlantic races and offshore events all over the world. In 2003, he began to build a career in yachting journalism as editor of a racing team's website and a regular contributor to thedailysail.com. He has written a column for Yachting World magazine and provides web, print and radio commentary for major sailing events. Most recently, he was broadcast news producer for Ellen MacArthur's team during her successful, round-the-world record attempt. Oliver Dewar is 45 and lives on the Isle of Wight.
