Something about him that you don't know: Will is also a bit of a science geek. He worked as a Marine Biologist between 1992 and 2000, studying the Great Barrier Reef in his native Oz.
He speaks: English
Who he is: Will has already completed twice in this race as navigator, and is one of the most experienced sailors around, having chalked up over 240,000nm in his illustrious career so far.
What he said: “It’s like being on the inside of a steel shed, with people banging on the outside – and I still have to come up with an answer, because we have to make a decision there and then. There’s something about that that is very, very real.”
