Geoff Holt Initiatives


Official Partners

Performance Sailing and Leisure Apparel

Founded in 1963 by Henri Strzelecki MBE,  Henri-Lloyd has established a formidable global reputation for innovative design and quality of premium sailing and lifestyle clothing.

Henri Lloyd have been a long and loyal supporter of Geoff in his record breaking endeavours having dressed him since 1992, when he became the first disabled person to sail single-handed around the Isle of Wight, again in 2007, when Geoff completed his first Personal Everest, by sailing single-handed around Great Britain and in 2009/10 when Geoff made his remarkable transatlantic crossing.

Achievement and Celebration

Champagne Pol Roger was founded in 1849 and now owns 87 hectares of vineyards on prime sites in the Vallée d’Epernay and on the Côte des Blancs.

Its cellars run for 7km and are on three levels, the deepest known as the ‘cave de prise de mousse’ at 33m below street level. As the name suggests this is where the wine undergoes its secondary fermentation in bottle. The fact that this deep cellar is at 9 degrees or less, rather than a normal cellar temperature of 11-12o, thus prolonging this fermentation, is one contributing factor to the quality and particular style of the wines and their famously fine bubbles.

Marine Electronics 

Raymarine, the world leader in marine electronics develops and manufactures the most comprehensive range of electronic equipment for the recreational boating and light commercial marine markets. Smart on the inside, simple on the outside: that’s the Raymarine advantage.

Their products combine industry-leading technology with intuitive design, to deliver a range that’s ideally suited to the needs of today’s boater – whether it’s a round-the-world race or a weekend fishing trip. Geoff is an Ambassador for Raymarine and has employed their products in both his ‘Personal Everest’ and transatlantic campaigns.


The Peter Harrison Foundation was founded by Mr Peter Robert Harrison in April 1999.

In October 2000 Peter completed a Deed of Gift under which he and his family gifted £30 million as a capital endowment to the Foundation.

As a keen and active sportsman throughout his life, Peter Harrison believes that education and sport provide the key stepping stones to self-development, creation of choice, confidence building and self reliance. A pioneering and successful businessman, entrepreneur and sportsman himself, Peter wishes to share his success by making these stepping stones more readily available to those who may be disabled or disadvantaged and who may not otherwise have the opportunity to develop their self potential.

The creation of the Foundation is the means by which Peter hopes that this may be achieved. In the first few years since its formation, the Foundation has distributed over £10 million and has made grants to over two hundred and fifty charities.

Founded in 1990, Mace has endeavoured to find a better way for our clients, communities and the property industry, to constantly challenge the status quo and make the seemingly impossible possible.  Today, as an international consultancy and construction company employing some 2,800 people and  involved in some of the world’s most important and iconic building and infrastructure projects, Mace sees this ongoing dedication to excellence not only as an essential part of what makes the company tick, but also as a responsibility as an industry leader. Mace is providing support and expertise to a major new Geoff Holt initiative.

Pascall+Watson is an award winning architectural practice with over 50 years experience of designing and delivering buildings.

Their team of Architects, Design Managers, Masterplanners, Interior Designers, Project Managers, with administrative and technical support, strive to fulfill a philosophy which is based on providing the highest levels of design and performance.

Commercial Representation

Slipstream is an integrated marketing and communications agency with extensive knowledge and experience in marketing, communications, sponsorship, rights management, event creation and management, website design and production, content management, graphic design, CRM, PR and media distribution in Sports, Adventure and Entertainment.

Their specialist skills are in the development of strategies and programmes which fully harness experiential and digital engagement and their delivery channels in their implementation – ensuring rapid distribution of news, information and content to the widest (or most selected) audiences and providing them with the ability to interact in real time, through websites, mobile applications, social and networking media and live events.

Slipstream have worked with Geoff since his ‘Impossible Dream’ transatlantic campaign and continue to implement his digital engagement and commercial strategies.

Motivational Speaking Engagements and Public Appearances

Caroline Rose Management represents dynamic motivational speakers who deliver powerful messages with humour and insight.  All of the speakers they represent have pushed boundaries, embraced change and achieved the (seemingly) impossible, often in the most hostile of environments. Caroline Rose Management represents Geoff Holt in his public speaking engagements and personal appearences.
