VIDEO: Jim Clark disusses boats, breast feeding, and marriage

Published on December 21st, 2014

The 100-foot Comanche from the offices of Verdier Yacht Design & VPLP will have her ‘major league’ debut in the 2014 Sydney Hobart Race. At the race press conference before the start, Comanche’s owner Jim Clark talks on all things including “breast feeding”. He concedes that this race isn’t the ideal first race for such a big, complex machine, but: “I am married to an Australian, and I’ve seen the start of the Rolex Sydney Hobart a number of times. My good friend Neville Crichton challenged me to come down.” And then comes the clincher, the phrase yachties around the world can only dream of as they pour the family fortune into a watery hole: “MY WIFE MADE ME DO IT,” Clark insists.
