Biography

A seven-time sailing world champion, five-time America's Cup veteran and two-time Olympian, Paul Cayard is one of the world's most accomplished athletes. Having been the first American skipper to win the Whitbread Round the World Race in 1998, his ability to lead a team, which faces the most demanding conditions, is unrivalled in the world of sailing.

As CEO of his 2000 America's Cup entry, AmericaOne and his recent success leading the Disney entry Pirates of the Caribbean in the 2005-2006 Volvo Ocean Race, he demonstrated not only his leadership, courage and determination as an athlete, but also his understanding of the commercial value that sport can bring to business. The Star World Championship in 1988 is his most treasured prize. His accolades include election to the Sailing World Hall of Fame in 2002 and Rolex Yachtsman of the Year in 1998.

Captain Paul Cayard's limited edition book, The Black Pearl--A Pirate Ship is now available. The book chronicles the Pirates of the Caribbean team's epic adventures racing around the world in the Volvo Ocean Race 2005-2006. He is also the author of Life at the Extreme--Volvo Ocean Race 2005-2006 and Fighting Finish--Volvo Ocean Race 2001-2002.

For Paul Cayard, being the Captain of The 'real' Black Pearl was another unique life experience. He thinks they did a great job to finish second overall. Winning the final leg into Gothenburg made for a storybook ending.

In February 2007, in an exclusive interview with Yacht Capital, Captain Cayard talks about his return to the America's Cup as technical advisor to Desafio Espanol, bringing along his experience from the Volvo Ocean Race 2005-2006. He also shares his views on the 32nd edition of the Cup and the future of the sport.

Through his 25 years of competing at the highest levels of sailing, Paul Cayard has developed a wealth of experience in team building, team management and sports marketing. Teams in the America's Cup or Volvo Ocean Race often number more than 100 team members specializing in many different disciplines ranging from; aerodynamics to engineering, law, accounting, physical training, logistics, sail making, nutrition and boat building. He has coordinated, motivated and managed the many diverse personalities on his teams to develop strong, cohesive and unified teams which have achieved very successful results year after year. He and his team at Cayard Sailing can deliver value to your project, conference, or business.
