The 2017-18 Volvo Ocean Race suffered a significant blow when Team Sun Hung Kai / Scallywag lost John Fisher overboard on March 26, approximately 1,400 nautical miles west of Cape Horn. The team provides this video tribute to John Fisher, a gifted sailor and a generous man at heart.
“The passing of John Fisher has been devastating on many, and it has been a truly difficult time for everyone. He has touched many peoples lives throughout this race, and always with a smile on his face. He has inspired countless with his generosity and kindness, and taught so many with his lifetime of experience at sea. He will not be forgotten, for he has left a legacy behind. May he rest in peace.”
