Protecting the team, Carl Fereday

Rescue Swimmer, INEOS TEAM UK

Having spent his life in and around the water, up until seven months ago Carl Fereday knew very little about the world of professional sailing and the America’s Cup. Having worked serving the British Military for 13 years, Carl left and fell into the private security sector, mainly focusing on superyacht.

His roles included everything from training staff onboard superyachts to putting together teams onboard to tackle the piracy problem in Somalia. It was at this time that he received an offer to join INEOS TEAM UK.

Since September 2019, Carl has been INEOS TEAM UK’s Rescue Swimmer. A transition that may not be as big as a leap as it may first appear.
