James Macfee leg 1

Leg 1 - Liverpool, UK to Punta Del Este, Uruguay
Distance: 6,300 nautical miles (officially, many more in reality) Number of souls on board: 24
Number of days at sea: 33
Finish position: 8th

We have arrived in Punta and what a good feeling that is. This first leg has lived up to all my expectations and more but it has also shed all apprehension about the length of the race as a whole. After 33 days and in reality many more miles than the official leg length of 6,300nM I was not as excited to get off the boat as I expected to be. In fact I could have easily just had a shower, a nap and head...

Today the Clipper Race gets underway once more on Leg 2.
3560nM from Punta Del Este in Uruguay to Cape Town South Africa.


Lively weather systems and lumpy seas will make this leg a bumpy ride with life at 45% being the norm.
The crews work split shifts 24 hours a day, often in what becomes an intense match race with little rest, no dryers, no heating and no showers yet speak to any of the crew and their eyes light up because there's something incredibly attractive about stripping back to life's essentials and being part of an amateur team faced with one of the toughest challenges.  As our am...

EB Firefighter

The Firefighter - by Ian Elliot

In 2014 we agreed to support firefighter Billy Taylor in a race to row across the Pacific. As a founder of the Spotlight YOPD charity for young onset Parkinson’s Disease, Billy managed to raise huge awareness during the arduous race. Astonishingly, his team secured not one but two world records and his Elliot Brown watch didn’t miss a beat despite incredible punishment over the duration of the race. 

A little while later Billy’s friend and fellow firefighter Scott Butler was about to set off and break records of his own rowing the black sea then climbing Moun...

Fraser Corsan exiting his plane at altitude

An Elliot Brown Bloxworth was strapped to the wrist of Fraser Corsan as he jumps out of a plane achieving 249 mph in a wingsuit! Fastest Bloxworth ever? Might just be. 

Project Cirrus is summarised on their website as: "Sixteen years ago, Fraser Corsan was one of only 15 wingsuit pilots globally. Add all 1,300 of his wingsuit jumps together and he’s flown the distance from New York to Mumbai. He’s experienced over two days of continuous freefall. He’s fallen a vertical height equal to 108 times the distance from earth to space. But it will take all the experience, intelligence, strength an...

EB Watches Kimmeridge Ladies watch

We have worked very hard since we started Elliot Brown to build our watches tough and rugged, ready to take on whatever is thrown at them. Almost immediately they were adopted by adventurers who test their own limits and expect their gear to be just as adaptable from the everyday to the extraordinary. We are guys and we went with what we know in this respect but we found, again quite quickly, that the fairer sex was a bit green eyed about the watches we were producing on the wrists of the guys.

There are ladies who wear the watches we have produced to date and love them, but at this point ...
