About Patrick Hemp

It’s my father’s fault…….he designed, built and raced a 51ft yacht in the 1976 Cape-to-Rio Yacht Race. Twenty years later I did the same trip to Brazil on a Simonis designed raceboat called Merlin. Since then I have lived and worked on various yachts all over the world with the J-Boat Endeavour being a highlight. Eventually the time came to get that proper job and I attended The Landing School in Maine, US and completed the Yacht Design program. Besides being a design focused course it also taught me advanced composite engineering as well as systems design. The most important thing I walked away with was the ability to understand and manage projects effectively as well as coordinate things in complex environments.
