Volvo Ocean Race winner Luke Parkinson has never seen snow and 'Parko' isn't going to this year, preferring to hunt down our marine race tracks during the summer. Parko has been described as a "full blown lunatic" on the water - so expect fireworks to follow him on every leg - particularly as he faces off against his former America's Cup team mates in Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen.

For youth world champion Ayden Menzies, you could say he is looking forward to joining the modern family of Sam and Luke aboard the tech2 SuperFoiler. For 'Menzies' Modern Family is often front of mind, or at the least his favourite actress Sophia Vergara is. Expect Ayden to be always punctual at the start line, he never sleeps in, so he has a lot of extra hours in the day... maybe that is how he learned to cook such a tasty Thai beef salad.

  • Boat Captain for Artemis Racing in the 35th America's Cup Bermuda
  • Winner of the 2003 ISAF 420 Worlds
  • Winner of the 2002 ISAF Youth World Championships

The America's Cup campaigner likes his eggs sunny side up. The 'Boatshow' grew up sailing on Sydney Harbour with his sisters. A lover of all things aquatic it is no surprise he is a Pisces.  It remains to see if he will be a fast fish on-board the tech2 SuperFoiler.
