Sir Robin Knox-Johnston's Open 60 named earlier today in Portsmouth 22/9/06

Sir Robin Knox-Johnston and rock legend, Queen drummer Roger Taylor officially named Sir Robin’s Open 60 yacht ‘Saga Insurance’ in Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth, prior to the start of the Velux 5 Oceans start in Bilbao.

At 67 Sir Robin is the oldest and most experienced skipper in the competitive fleet, but his campaign and choice of theme tune, Queen’s ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ demonstrates that age is no barrier to achieving at the highest level. Early next weekSaga Insurancewill depart from UK waters and head for the start port of the ultimate challenge in Bilbao.
