SeaDream to Host World-Renowned Rugby Player, Gavin Hastings –

Sailing aboard SeaDream I in the Caribbean, November 2011

(Miami, Florida) – April 19, 2011 – This is the first time small-ship operator SeaDream Yacht Club has hosted a UK-based sports personality on board. Gavin Hastings, widely respected as one of the best rugby players of his generation, amassed 733 points in Test Match rugby over a 10-year period. He captained every team he ever played for, including Scotland, the Barbarians and the Lions. He won his first Cap for Scotland in the mid 1980s and thereafter followed 60 further Caps, including 20 as Captain. He retired having played in the first three Rugby World Cups and toured with the British Lions to Australia in 1989 and as Captain to New Zealand four years later. Gavin remains the second highest points scorer in Rugby World Cup history.

During this voyage, guests aboard SeaDream’s deluxe, mega-yacht, SeaDream I, will have stimulating insight from Gavin into what it takes to be a great team player and leader. Gavin illustrates how we can all apply the lessons learned on the rugby pitch to the business environment, achieving better performance. He is no stranger to public speaking and appears regularly in the media; his tailor-made presentations are filled with a mix of humorous and inspirational anecdotes.

Gavin is sailing with SeaDream immediately upon his return from the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. Says Gavin Hastings: “Let’s hope I may be celebrating a great Rugby World Cup and a strong Scottish performance. I am very much looking forward to joining SeaDream guests this November on this fantastic Caribbean yachting voyage – my very first cruise experience.”
