New base in Poole for Pip Hare Ocean Racing

The Pip Hare Ocean Racing Team has a new base on Poole Quay in the offices of Coleman Marine Insurance, the specialist marine division of Gallagher UK Retail. 

“We are privileged that Coleman Marine Insurance have been appointed as insurance brokers for Pip Hare Ocean Racing,” says Steven Risk, managing director at Coleman. 

“It quickly became clear that we could help in other ways and that it was a natural fit for Pip and the team to make our Poole Quay office their team base and to make good use of our facilities, just a stone’s throw from where Medallia is moored at Poole Quay Haven.”

Single handed ocean racing sailor, Pip Hare comments: “I’ve got a very different campaign to take me to the next Vendee Globe race in 2024 – I have a faster boat, a professional team behind me and a real chance of fighting it out at the front of the fleet. So, having an office in Poole where I can base this exciting campaign is very important. I’m really grateful to Steve and his team at Coleman Insurance for all their support and for the office space they’ve provided.”
