Ken Read has skippered in the America's Cup, gone around the world on a Volvo Ocean Race yacht, and today is President of North Sails Group. As Ken says, he owes everything in his life to sailing, beginning with the weekend sails he did with his family on a 30-foot sloop they inherited.
This short clip is from an entertaining talk Ken gave during the inaugural US Sailing Leadership Forum, held in Portsmouth, Rhode Island in March, 2014.
