England rugby player and Musto country ambassador James Haskell joined the Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing crew, kitted out in the Musto macnab jacket and breeks, for a two hour sail in the Solent.

Haskell said: “As an avid shooter, I have been wearing MUSTO tweeds for a number of years but wasn’t sure if they would be able to make it through the conditions on deck.

“It was a bit of a challenge to convince the sailors that tweed would be cut out for a testing ride on a Volvo Ocean 65, but we were kept warm and dry – plus it was great to get off the land and get my sea legs tested for the day. It was a great challenge and fantastic to see the Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing  team in action ahead of the Volvo Ocean Race.”
