Team rider Alan Davis


Alan Davis is a highly accomplished Laser sailor – he has over 40 World, European and National titles to his name. He has been deeply involved in competitive sailing for most of his life. A familiar face on the competitive circuit since the Euro Cup events of the 1980s, Alan has travelled the world and watched sailing grow into a mainstream sport.

As well as his impressive competition resumé, Alan is the UK Laser Class Measurer and a key supporter of the UKLA committee. He uses his role to help people of all ages make the most of their sailing with his skill and knowledge. This passion hasn’t gone unnoticed; he won the ‘Mentor of the Week’ award at the 2019 Laser Nationals.

Alan kicked off 2020 with a competition in Florida, and his plans include further travel and competition throughout Europe, and the World Masters in Geelong, Australia.

"I am delighted to have been selected to join the NeilPryde Sailing Team for 2020. Comfort, warmth and flexibility are key things I look for in my sailing gear and NeilPryde delivers on all fronts. Apart from the lifejackets, my favourite is the 1mm Elite Firewire top - a must have for all sailing bags. I have a number of goals for this season and NeilPryde's support will help me achieve these."
