Team Concise: Ned Collier Wakefield

    Haslemere, UK


    Team Concise aims to give young British sailors a successful future in competitive offshore sailing.

    Ned Collier Wakefield has been the Team Concise skipper and director for the past 10 years. A highly accredited sailor in his own right, he has led the team to numerous notable victories. The team has been described by the Royal Ocean Racing Club as the future of British offshore sailing. There is no doubt that Ned and the team are hugely driven athletes, and approach every challenge with 100% dedication.

    The Team’s greatest achievement is creating a competitive offshore racing team that can hold its own and beat the best sailors in the world on one of the most extreme boats in the world. As a career goal, the ultimate aim is to win the Volvo Ocean Race.

    Team Concise spends most of their time on the boat, but outside of sailing, they enjoy a variety of activities, from daily gym work-outs to road cycling
