Round the world sailor Robin Knox-Johnston enjoys relaxing day in Valencia at Challenger finals 6/6/07

 Sir Robin Knox-Johnston was in Valencia yesterday to watch the Challenger finals between Luna Rosa and Emirates Team New Zealand.

Having been an ambassador of Henri Lloyd for 38 years, Sir Robin spent the day behind the scenes with BMW Oracle Racing team watching the racing from a spectator boat with Henri Lloyd Joint Chief Executive, Paul Strzelecki.

Knox-Johnston commented: “This was the first time I’ve seen the America’s Cup world from such close quarters. It is really exciting match racing and I thoroughly enjoyed being a spectator. It is good spending some time enjoying other people’s events after my recent voyage and particularly good spending time with Paul. I’ve worn Henri Lloyd clothing for a long time, as long as I can remember! It is good clothing and has kept me dry ashore and afloat.”
