Iain draws from his experiences of three Olympic games and two America’s Cups. As well as being one of the most talented and successful sailors in the world, Iain is also a born leader and motivator. In his new role as Team Manager he is responsible for not only being a professional athlete, but also leading Artemis Racing’s 140 strong team in their goal of winning the America’s Cup.


Asked to address a 150 strong audience of sport industry professionals Iain Percy proved to be an engaging, confident and insighful speaker. Iain provided an excellent mix of personal observations and thoughts on the industry as a whole delivered in a concise 30 minute slot. It is rare that such a top-class athlete proves to be so relaxed, bright and humorous in front of an audience. His presentation was a highlight of a very successful day and we would have no hesitations in asking Iain to present at another one of our events.

Iain is one of those people who never seeks leadership, but people ask him for it and that’s very unique. Iain has that charisma and that personality — he earns it somehow.
