"I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to sail with you at
Cowes. As I have said in my Sunday Times piece, it came not far
behind playing with Maradona in my all time sporting highs. I
really enjoyed it and wanted to thank you for the experience"
Alastair Campbell: Artemis Challenge 2008

Challenge. It was a very memorable experience and I would love to
sail with him again."

"Joff Brown was the technical /project manager for the
Motorola/Conrad Humphreys Racing Campaign for the Vendee Globe
2004-2005. He delivered an exceptional programme for the campaign
which was well managed on a tight budget and achieved strong
results over the two year programme"
Conrad Humphreys: Skipper Vendee Globe
I firmly believe that every aspect of Aviva, including her design
development, build fit out and preparation and maintenance are
classic examples of exemplary project management. Your planning and
timely decision making also enabled the boat to be built on time
and on budget"
Andrew Roberts: Campaign Director AVIVA
Joff's professional attitude to the project management combined
with his technical expertise always helped us to be on budget and
on time. There is no doubt in my mind that Joff's excellent work
contributed to the various campaigns recording an unprecedented
100% success rate. Working with Joff gives me a peace of mind,
before heading offshore, that everything has been thought of and
all eventualities have been run through to the best of our
