Conrad Humphreys Biography

Conrad Humphreys is a British Triple round-the-world yachtsman, entrepreneur and motivational speaker of the highest caliber. 

Conrad is only in his thirties yet he has competed in three around-the-world races and is well respected on the international sailing circuit. During his three around-the-world races he has sailed through some of the most grueling conditions and had near death experiences.

At 28 years old Conrad led his team ‘LG Flatron’ to victory in the BT Global Challenge race, proving his talent and ability to drive and lead his team. At this point it was only natural that he would progress further in his career.

The Vendée Globe is considered one of the toughest sporting events in the world and Conrad is the 5th British sailor in history to complete the Vendée Globe race. He spent 104 days alone at sea, setting out in November 2004...

Conrad is only in his thirties yet he has competed in three around-the-world races and is well respected on the international sailing circuit. During his three around-the-world races he has sailed through some of the most grueling conditions and had near death experiences.

At 28 years old Conrad led his team ‘LG Flatron’ to victory in the BT Global Challenge race, proving his talent and ability to drive and lead his team. At this point it was only natural that he would progress further in his career.

The Vendée Globe is considered one of the toughest sporting events in the world and Conrad is the 5th British sailor in history to complete the Vendée Globe race. He spent 104 days alone at sea, setting out in November 2004 and crossing the finish line on the 20th of February 2005. During the race Conrad and his team hit an object, which struck one of their twin rudders. As they made their way to Cape Town everyone thought that their race was over, however they made the necessary repairs and continued the race, finishing 7th. Conrad’s incredible achievement is considered to be one of the biggest sailing comebacks of all time.

Conrad is a natural in front of the camera and his success has led him to TV presenting and public speaking. He has commentated for the BBC and participated in live interviews for Sky Sports, as well as taking part on ‘Big Brother’s Little Brother’. He was also asked to be one of the eight men used by Carolina Herrera to epitomise the designer’s new fragrance ‘CH for Men’.

He has appeared in the publication ‘Champions for Change-Athletes Making a World of Difference’, written by the Global Sports Alliance. In addition to his many other achievements Conrad founded the sports marketing company, ‘Sports Environment’ and set up the Blue Climates and Oceans projects, a social enterprise, set up to promote adventure sports and involve people in the well being of our planet.
