Move Over For Grandson Jack Trigger

My grandson Jack Trigger is fiercly competitive in his off-shore racing career. In addition, he’s also competing with me in front of the camera – what a nice surprise!  French magazine Sport & Style – L’Equipe combines the worlds of sport and fashion. Jack one of nine skippers selected out of the 123 entered in the Route du Rhum recently did a fashion shoot in Paris.

Modelling Cerruti published today Sunday 4th November as Jack sets off from St Malo to Guadeloupe. The 3500 nm race is his first transatlantic solo race. With 52 skippers in Class 40 Jack on Concise 8 will have strong competition in the fight to arrive first.

Jack’s mind won’t be on modelling or fashion at anytime over the next few weeks as he battles the ocean and weather conditions. But it’s nice for me to know it’s in his genes!

It will be gripping following his progress on this epic adventure (he’s the youngest skipper at 24 years old in the fleet of world class sailors). So I shall be regularly checking the tracker. As will all the family, especially his mother Claire

Partnership opportunities with Jack

Jack was diagnosed at 21 years old as a Type 1 Diabetic. He is an ambassador for Diabetes UK and is building an impressive group of sponsors. All eager to support him and be part of his story. There is room for more partnerships in this group as he heads for the main goal. Round the world solo non-stop in the Vendee Globe. So please do share this opportunity with family, friends and colleagues who may want to join Jack and colloborate in his mission. Because a serious medical condition doesn’t have to stop you from achieving at the highest level.
