Hanson lecture: Slippery Boats, with Nigel Irens

Nigel Irens is a leading yacht designer, perhaps best known as creator of the trimaran used by Ellen MacArthur to break the world record for solo circumnavigation in 2005. His portfolio is wide-ranging, from racing yachts to innovative cruising designs, typically synthesising traditional forms with modern materials and methods of construction. In this talk he will cover a couple of his most famous designs before going on to explain the background to his latest projects.
